Melaye’s brother had raised an alarm on Thursday that the senator had been kidnapped.

Ben Murray-Bruce, a senator from Bayelsa, had quoted him (the brother) as saying Melaye was bundled into a Toyota Sienna while he was travelling to Kogi.

Writing via his Twitter handle on Friday, Melaye thanked Nigerians for their prayers while in “custody”.

He wrote: “I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love.

“Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom only I trust. They will continue to try. We shall overcome.”

The police had earlier said it received no report or complaint of the senator’s alleged kidnap.

Melaye was absent on Thursday at a magistrate court in Lokoja, Kogi state, where he is facing a gun-running trial.

Owing to his absence, the case was adjourned till August 9.
