Senator Dino Melaye was on Tuesday rescued by his supporters from being taking to Kogi State by the Operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS.
The lawmaker, according to reliable sources, was arrested by the SARS and 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, it was gathered from a reliable source that while the SARS was conveying Melaye to Kogi State, the Senator reportedly jumped out of SARS’ vehicle, sat on the floor and the security operatives were surrounded by his teaming supporters who over powered the security agents and drove away with Senator Dino Melaye.
It would be recalled that initial attempts were made by the police to arrest Senator Melaye after immigration officials disembarked him from a flight to Morocco on Monday morning.
Following his release after three hours detention at the immigration office at the airport, the lawmaker’s house was besieged by over 80 armed policemen from Monday until the early hours of Tuesday.
