Nigerians In Shock As Senator Dino Melaye Flees Nigeria, Drops Powerful Message For Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Goes On Exile

Senator Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi-West in the Senate, has allegedly fled Nigeria.

According to Sahara Reporters, Melaye who is facing the possibility of recall by his Constituents, has fled Nigeria and vowed not to return until there is a new government at the Federal level, as well as a new one in his home State of Kogi.

He also left a stern warning for the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the entire Upper Legislative Chamber.

Sources told Sahara Reporters that on Saturday, Melaye called two senior staff of the Senate President, to tell them to pass on the message that he needs the Senate to support him against Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, who is thought to be behind the recall and his recent trouble with the Police.

A source said he overheard Melaye warning during a phone conversation, that should he not get the support of the Senate President and the Senate, he would go public with how much has been spent to keep Saraki in office.

The source equally disclosed that Melaye is working on some Senators to ensure that his troubles, to be dressed up as ‘persecution’, are raised on the floor of the Senate, on Tuesday.

According to the source, Melaye wants the Senate to pressure the Police to withdraw the charges of robbery slapped on him.

The Senator rejected the suggestion that he should appear in the Senate and move a motion, saying he would be arrested and handcuffed by the Police.

Sources said that on Saturday afternoon, some Senators met at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, in Abuja, to discuss the threat issued by Melaye, should he not get their support.

Sources close to the meeting, disclosed that his threat is considered by the Senators to carry an enormous potential for embarrassing the leadership of the Senate.

This is said to be related to an investigation into the affairs of a telecommunications company, through which the leadership and some other Senators cut deals.

An emergency meeting is already fixed for Saturday night, to discuss how to counter Melaye, who is said to have goods on the leadership of the Senate, on account of his involvement in many dodgy transactions featuring the Senate Leaders, should it be necessary.
