Dino Melaye In Handcuffs While Being Transferred To The National Hospital Abuja

Senator Dino Melaye was hospitalized yesterday after his battle with police while being transported to Lokoja, Kogi State to face criminal charges.

The lawmaker was initially admitted at the intensive care unit of Zankli hospital opposite the Ministry of Power, Works and Housing, Mabushi in Abuja before he was transferred to the National Hospital.

A photo posted online shows Melaye in handcuffs laying on a stretcher while being transferred in an ambulance by the police to the National Hospital last night in Abuja.

Senate President Bukola Saraki led other senators to the Hospital to pay a visit to Melaye.

Speaking to newsmen after the visit, Saraki said the embattled senator is in intensive care and has not eaten in the last 24 hours.

He said: “We are happy that we’ve just seen him. He’s in the intensive care and stable for now, though he has not eaten in the last 24 hours and we are trying to resolve that.”
