Controversial APC senator Dino Melaye reportedly bought a 93-year-old classic Rolls Royce in Las Vegas. The car is estimated to cost about N180 million. This has caused a lot of mixed reaction especially because the country was officially declared in recession in August.
According to Premium Times, the flamboyant senator who owns a fleet of luxury and antiquated cars worth billions of Naira, has at least 28 of the expensive cars parked at his upmarket residence in Maitama Abuja.
The Rolls Royce has the registration number “MELAYE 2” and is believed to cost some $400,000.
Speaking to a correspondent, a close source said the car was purchased in Las Vegas, in the United States of America.
“Senator Dino Melaye is very smart, he actually got the car from Las Vegas two years ago. At that time, he was busy committed with anti-graft crusade as Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network (ACN) but decided to keep it in secrecy,” the source said.
The chairman of the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory reportedly released the photographs of the vehicle as he prepared to exhibit the exotic model at the National Assembly this week.
