Police officers have stopped the delegation of the Senate from seeing Senator Dino Melaye who is receiving medical attention at the National Trauma Centre unit of the National Hospital, Abuja.
The senate delegation comprises the deputy Senate leader,
Bala Ibn’Nallah, Francis Alimekhena, Emmanuel Bwacha.
The National Trauma Unit of the hospital was heavily guarded by
stern looking operatives of SARS.
The leader of SARS was identified as O. F. Onche who insisted that
Senators cannot see Dino Melaye which according to him,
was an order from above, Daily Post reported.
Below is a conversation that ensued as reported:
“Senator Bala Na’Allah: We are Senators and we are here to see Senator Dino.”
“SARS leader: I know you. You cannot see him now. It is an instruction.”
“Bala Na’Allah: Instructions from above?”
SARS leader: I said it is an instruction, may be you can see the medical director..”
The delegation left without seeing Dino.
But, on their way back to the National Assembly,
another senator intervened and they were called back.
