Except he reports to the police on or before Wednesday, 28 March, the Nigeria Police has threatened to declare Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, wanted.

The Kogi State Police Command had written to the senator to appear before it to answer charges of gun running levelled against him by two suspects in police custody.

Jimoh Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer, in a statement issued on Saturday, disclosed that an invitation and a court summon had been issued to Senator Melaye, both of which he did not honour.

He said the senator is wanted on grounds of criminal offences of conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms, Channels Television reports.

According to the PRO, Melaye’s summon follows the arrest of two men in Dekina Local Government Area of Kogi State, on January 19, after they confessed to having committed various crimes such as kidnappings and armed robbery.

They also disclosed that the Senator had handed them a bag containing firearms.
