The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, has arrived Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.
Melaye was conveyed in an ambulance by the police authorities and has appeared before a Magistrate Court in the state.
The Senator who was earlier taken to the office of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in the north-central state, was guarded by armed policemen.
According to the police, Melaye is being arraigned for an alleged criminal conspiracy, causing damage to government property, attempted suicide and escape from lawful custody.
Channels TV reports that the Senator’s arraignment today follows his discharge from the National Hospital after he was confirmed fit for trial.
Melaye landed in the National Hospital after he jumped out of a moving police vehicle on April 24 while being conveyed to Kogi State.
He was also said to have resisted a further attempt by the police to re-arrest him with the help of some persons who allegedly threatened to injure the police officers if they tried to arrest him.
According to reports, Dino was ferried to the state in an ambulance by the police. Recall he was re-arrested at the premises of the magistrate court in Abuja shortly after he was granted bail in the sum of N90 million for an attempt to commit suicide and escape from lawful custody.
