Contrary to reports that he was kidnapped on Thursday, Senator Dino Melaye has said he escaped “another dangerous attack.”
He disclosed this in a tweet on Friday in which he said he spent “11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me.”
“I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love.
“God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!,” Melaye stated.
The Nation reports that Melaye was reportedly abducted by unknown gunmen in Abuja on Thursday.
Senator Ben Murray Bruce disclosed the kidnap on his twitter handle – @benmurraybruce.
According to him, the Kogi West senator was abducted on his way to Kogi from Abuja.
He said: “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. Let’s be on the watch out. Will keep you updated.”
