According to him, they were arrested after a gun battle with a Police team, which lasted for several hours on January 19.

He said a case of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms had been filed by the Police against the two suspects and Senator Dino Melaye. Meanwhile, Senator Dino Melaye in his reaction to the allegations, said it was a frame-up and an orchestrated attempt by the state government to discredited him. The Senator said he had never seen the suspects in his life and did not have anything to do with them. Melaye said the move was an attempt by the Kogi State government to shut him up and prevent him from speaking the truth about governance in the state. The Senator noted that he contested and won elections into the House of Representatives and the Senate without working with political thugs, saying the plan had been exposed about six weeks ago. Melaye’s words: “This is an attempt to shut me up and stop me from speaking the truth. But they have failed. It is an orchestrated lie by the governor and the Police. “I have tweeted about it six weeks ago; that they want to set me up because I got a tip-off from government house when they met to set me up. “You can see the conflicting statements by the criminals. I heard one said I gave two AK-47 and pump action, while the other said I gave only one rifle and that I gave N430,000 to train militia, and that I met them on Airport Road in December 2017. “But they didn’t give a date and time. I don’t know anybody. I have not involved myself with any thug. I became member House of Representatives and Senate without thug. If this is an attempt to shut me up they have failed.”
