Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district, has surrendered to the police after over a week siege at his Abuja residence, TheCable reports.
The police had vowed not to leave Melaye’s residence without arresting him. He was accused of culpable homicide, an allegation he denied.
TheCable understands that Melaye is currently at the head office of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) in Abuja in the company of some lawmakers and his lawyers.
The lawmaker, who represents Kogi West constituency, opened the door to the residence himself on Friday afternoon in the presence of police operatives and some senators of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
While coming out of the house, Senator Melaye slumped to the floor and was later assisted onto his feet.
He was thereafter taken to the office of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) in Guzape, the nation’s capital.
