Senator Ben Murray Bruce has raised the alarm that his colleague, Senator Dino Melaye, who has been in police custody is being held in ‘unhealthy circumstances’.
The senator made this known via Twitter on Monday.
Ben Bruce said that Melaye, who is being held on allegations of attempted murder on the life of one sergeant Saliu Danjuma, is sick and needs proper health care.
Melaye surrendered to police after an 8-day siege in his Maitama, Abuja residence – After police made it clear they weren’t going anyone until the lawmaker surrenders, is arrested and investigated for crimes alleged against him.
According to Bruce, his colleague’s blood pressure has been steadily on the rise and currently 150/110. For this he says, three consultants have asked that Mr Melaye be moved to a better facility but police have remained adamant.
SOS: Dino Melaye is being held in very unhealthy circumstances by Police.
3 consultants recommended he be moved but the police have ignored the report. His BP is steadily on the rise & currently 150/110. Let’s recall Dino Melaye is being treated this way because he is PDP.
