Just In: Dino Melaye denied bail

Senator Dino Melaye was on Thursday denied bail by a Senior Magistrate Court 2, in Lokoja, Kogi State.


He is to be remanded in Police custody for the next 38 days pending the commencement of hearing in the suit brought by police against him and three others.

Ruling on the suit, Chief Magistrate Suleiman Abdulahi denied the bail application by Melaye’s counsel and ordered that he be kept in prison custody till June 11, 2018.

The Senator who was arraigned before the magistrate court on charges of gunrunning, kidnapping, and others through his lawyer, Mike Ozokome asked for bail.

The police counsel, Alex Isihon however argued for Melaye’s detention pending the determination of the case.

Melaye was brought into the court premises in an ambulance, at exactly 9.15am.



  1. Ofcourse, that is what it should be, after all the people that implicated him and who are Nigerians like Dino Melaye,are still in Police custody.

  2. No matter how much you wash up and dress up a big, it will still roll around in the mud
    Malaye brought all these embarrassment to himself by his silly ways
