The representative of Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has alleged that those who accused him of gun running, which led to his being summoned by the police have escaped from the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Lokoja, Kogi State.
Melaye leveled the accusation on Wednesday during the Senate plenary.
Melaye, who came under point of ordered on the floor of the Senate, asked the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to produce the suspect within 48 hours.
He told the lawmakers that his lawyers were in court by 9am on Wednesday to respond to the police allegations against him, but the Police were unable to produce the suspects in court.
He added that efforts by the police lawyer to persuade court to issue a bench warrant against him was rejected by the Court
But the prayer by Melaye to mandate the IGP to produce the suspects within 48 hours was ignored by the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki.
