Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has been kidnapped.

The Senator was said to be on his way to Kogi State for his court case when unknown gunmen in a Toyota Sienna blocked the car he was traveling in around Gwagwalada, Abuja and forcefully took him away.

Senator Ben Bruce confirmed this via his official Twitter handle @benmurraybruce. He said Moses Melaye, Dino’s younger brother informed him of the sad development.

“I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated,” the Tweet read.

 

It will be recalled that Dino Melaye, as well as many other federal legislators defected from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP and ADC on Tuesday.
