Senator Dino Melaye can be seen in the picture below having a dance during the NEC meeting held by PDP members in the wake of the election postponement.
This was the senator’s first sighting since he had an ordeal over a case of criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide alleged to have been committed on July 19, 2018.
His Maitama house was stormed by the police who got gold of him after an eight-day siege. When Melaye couldn’t take it anymore, he opened the door of the residence himself after which he slumped to the floor.
He was taken to the office of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) in Guzape, Abuja.
At the NEC meeting, Melaye took the time criticize the administration of President Buhari. He was also on Channels Television where he had a heated argument with Festus Keyamo on the President’s order against ballot box snatchers.
President Buhari few days ago ordered the military to take action against ballot box snatchers. According to him, anyone who wants to carry out the act of snatching ballot box will do so at the risk of his life.
Dino Melaye expressed disappointment at the president’s statement.
“I am utterly disappointed in my president. I am completely in shock that in a democratic setting, a president will speak with the anointing if Idi Amin of Uganda, the president will use the word “ruthless”, the president will order killings of Nigerians without going through Legal procedures. That is totally unacceptable.
“I expected that by now the President should have apologised to Nigerians and withdraw that statement but instead there has been a lot of efforts, boxing the wind by Chieftains of the APC, trying to defend what is not defendable,” he said.
