High court nullifies magistrate court’s decision on Melaye, orders immediate return to National Hospital

A Lokoja High Court has ordered the Police to return Senator Dino to the National Hospital, Abuja where he is receiving treatment.

Hearing on his bail is to be considered on Monday May 7, 2018.

The trial judge Justice Nasir Ajanah, gave the order on Friday after the senator’s legal counsel, Mike Ezekhome (SAN) sought for his bail.

While hearing for the bail application was being adjourned until Monday, May 7, 2018, the judge ruled that the senator must remain under the police custody while he is being transferred to the National Hospital.

This comes barely 24 hours after Senator Melaye appeared before a Senior Magistrates Court in Kogi state, on a stretcher.

According to the Police, Melaye is being arraigned for an alleged criminal conspiracy, as two suspects had earlier this year implicated the senator as their financier and supplier of guns to commit various crimes in the state.

He is also being tried for causing damage to government property, attempted suicide and escape from lawful custody.
