The Nigeria Police Force said on Saturday that the Senator representing Kogi West,

Dino Melaye and Alhaji Mohammed Audu would be declared wanted

if they refuse to comply with court order.

Melaye and Audu are expected to appear before the Federal High Court,

Lokoja, on March 28 to answer criminal charges against them.


Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood in a statement said the duo’s refusal to

appear in court would force it to obtain warrant of arrest or declare

them wanted throughout the country and on INTERPOL platform.

HAPPYNAIJA recalls that a political thug, Kabiru Saidu, A.K.A Osama,

had confessed that Melaye handed over a bag containing one AK47 rifle,

two Pump Action guns and the sum of N430,000.00 for him to share with his boys.

Moshood giving update on the investigation,

said the indictment of both politicians has led the Force to invite them for questioning.

He said: “Working on actionable intelligence,

the Kogi State Police Command personnel and operatives of the

Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad trailed and arrested two suspects –

Kabiru Saidu a.k.a Osama, 31, From Dekina local government area of Kogi State

25, (a member of the gang), after a gun battle with the police team that lasted for

some hours on the 19th January, 2018 at Ogojueje in Dekina LGA.


“During investigation, they confessed to the various criminal roles they played

in the commission of several kidnappings and armed robbery,

murder and other violent crimes in different parts of Kogi State for which

they have been on the wanted list of the police for more than two years now.

working as a political thug for one Alhaji Mohammed Audu,

a politician in the state and that Alhaji Mohammed Audu invited him to

Abuja and introduced him to Senator Dino Melaye and they met on Airport Road,

Abuja, inside the Senator Dino Melaye’s Car in December 2017.

“Saidu further confessed to the police investigative team that

Senator Dino Melaye handed over a bag containing one AK47 rifle,

two Pump Action guns and the sum of N430,000.00 to share with his boys.

“The police conducted investigation into the criminal indictments against
