Dogara urges police to ensure safety of Dino's life

A magistrate court in Lokoja, Kogi State, on Thursday has refused to grant bail to Senator Dino Melaye.

According to a statement by its spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, Dino Melaye was re-arrested to face charges for the pending offences of Criminal Conspiracy and Unlawful Possession of Prohibited Firearms which was already filed in a Court of competent jurisdiction in Lokoja.

Sunday had alleged that Melaye was being persecuted by the Kogi State Government because of his strong views on certain issues affecting the state.

"Prosecution can not come at the expense of death and that is very important because if anything happened to him, the responsibility will lie on the security agencies".

"So, my admonition to the security agencies is to do everything possible to ensure that his life is secured first before prosecution".

"I have not seen in any country where someone is arraigned in court on stretchers when he or she is not fit to plead guilty or not guilty. This case was investigated and that is why the senator was arraigned in court today", the police spokesperson said.

He was brought in on a stretcher by police officers who prevented journalists from coming closer to him.

Falana further asked the National Assembly to take advantage of Senator Melaye's case to adopt and domesticate the United Nations Minimum Standard for the Treatment of Criminal Suspects in Nigeria without any delay.

Senator Melaye was brought to court on a stretcher, under heavy security.

The court ordered that one of the sureties must be a civil servant not lower than Great Level 14, and one must have easily identifiable residence in Abuja.
