The Kogi senator was reportedly apprehended on Monday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Senator Dino Melaye, in dapper T-shirt, Face cap, red pants and red shoe, was prevented from boarding a Morocco-bound flight at the airport by Nigerian Immigration officials.

The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has lamented that over 30 heavily armed fierce mobile policemen on Monday stormed his residence in the Maitama area of Abuja, the nation's capital.

However, checks by Business Post revealed that Senator Melaye was stopped from boarding by security officials at the airport. And I said it was not true, that the INTERPOL said they had not issued an alert on me.

"We have called Interpol and they said it is a lie. They circled me and said they were waiting for further instructions from the police".

The Senator representing Kogi West said on his Twitter handle that he has just been arrested at the Abuja global airport.

Melaye who was allegedly accused of supplying arms to some murder suspects, had recently been declared wanted by the police.

Dino Melaye, Naija News can authoritatively report. But Melaye denied the allegations, claiming that he was a victim of a "gang up to silence" him.
