Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, has on Saturday, December 29, 2018, said he would turn himself in to the police next week.
Melaye had raised the alarm earlier in the week that police operatives invaded his Abuja residence.
Speaking with Channels Television, Melaye stated that he was not a criminal and has no reason to run from the police.
He explained that the police invasion of his residence was unnecessary and that he will report himself to the police as soon as he returns to Abuja.
Melaye said: “I was informed that my house has been invaded. Over 40 policemen inside the compound and over 50 outside the gate. My staff were molested, beaten and handcuffed and taken away.
“Presently I’m outside Abuja. I’m a Senator of the Federal Republic of Abuja, I cannot run away. I will make myself available as soon as I’m back to town next week. I am not a criminal; I have not done anything wrong.”
