The Police authorities have vowed not to leave Senator Dino Melaye’s residence until they arrest him.
The Police have subsequently deployed over 50 additional policemen around Melaye’s residence located on 11, Sangha Street, Off Mississippi, Maitama, FCT.
Findings indicate that the Police might storm the building and forcefully arrest the lawmaker who had holed up in the house since last Friday.
Our correspondent who is at the scene observed many policemen taking positions around the mansion.
The Police said the lawmaker representing Kogi West at the National Assembly was wanted for the alleged shooting of one Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, attached to 37 Police Mobile Force while on stop-and-search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.
The operatives had, last Saturday, cut off power supply to Melaye’s mansion as part of strategies to make him uncomfortable so that he could surrender for arrest, but the senator has so far remained adamant.
The Force spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, stated that Melaye had repeatedly spurned several invitations asking him to report for investigation into the case of attempted culpable homicide.
He noted that the operatives would not leave the lawmaker’s residence without arresting him.
