Dino Melaye jumps out of moving police vehicle, flees into bush but gets rearrested hours later

Embattled Nigerian Senator, Dino Melaye, yesterday jumped out of a police vehicle conveying him to Lokoja in Kogi State to face criminal charges.

The senator representing Kogi West was arrested on Tuesday morning after he was stopped from making an official trip to Morocco on Monday.
Dino had been declared wanted by the police after he was named in an assassination case.

After weeks of not honouring Police invite, he showed up at the Special Anti Robbery Squad, SARS, office on Tuesday and was immediately arrested and whisked away to Lokoja, Kogi State Capital, when the incident occurred.

According to reports, Dino who has been very critical of President Buhari's administration jumped off the police vehicle through the window and fled into a nearby bush.  He was taken to a hospital in Abuja and rearrested hours later. Police have released a statement saying he will be arraigned soon.
