A Nigerian senator critical of President Muhammadu Buhari has been kidnapped by gunmen.
Senator Dino Melaye who represents Kogi West at the National Assembly was abducted on his way to Kogi, tweeted Senator Ben Bruce who represents Bayelsa East.
“I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated,” Bruce tweeted.
Melaye was arraigned yesterday before an FCT High Court in Apo, Abuja on a six-count charge bordering on attempted suicide.
Daily Trust reported that Melaye was also charged with the offences of attempt to escape from lawful custody and damage of police property.
