Senator Dino Melaye Arrested By SARS Operatives


Operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad Tuesday morning picked up the embattled Senator Dino Melaye. 
The lawmaker, who represents Kogi West senatorial district at the upper legislative council, report says is at the moment being held at a facility located opposite the old CBN junction along the Area 1 Expressway.


The SARS detention facility is known for imprisoning hardened criminals arrested for theft, murder, cultism and other criminal acts.
Daily Post reports that when its reporters put a call through to the fiery lawmaker, he sounded rattled.
More so, the background conversation suggested a struggle between himself and some of the operatives, after which his mobile lines were switched off.
It would be recalled that initial attempts were made by the police to arrest Senator Melaye after immigration officials disembarked him from a flight to Morocco on Monday morning.
Following his release after three hours detention at the immigration office at the airport, the lawmaker’s house was besieged by over 80 armed policemen from yesterday until the early hours of Tuesday.
