After men of the Nigeria Police Force maintained an all night vigil at the Abuja home of Senator Dino Melaye, in an action which began yesterday afternoon, reports say the Kogi senator has been arrested early Tuesday.

Melaye was said to have been moved to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) Headquarters, Guzape, Abuja.

The lawmaker, according to reliable sources, was subsequently detained in a facility located opposite the old CBN junction along the Area 1 Expressway.

The SARS detention facility is known for imprisoning hardened criminals arrested for theft, murder, cultism and other criminal acts. However, the police is yet to confirm Melaye’s arrest.

It will be recalled that Naija News had earlier reported how the senator cried out earlier today over an alleged attempt to kill him, following the withdrawal of his security details.

We are in a civil society. No warrant and case is in court yet this lawlessness. I’m a responsible NIGERIAN and law abiding. There is a plan to kill me and I know about it,” Melaye wrote on Twitter.
