After an 8-day siege, Melaye finally surrenders to the police.

The 8-day-old siege on the residence of the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, by the police, has come to an end after the senator surrendered himself some minutes ago.
.
.
The siege marked at least the fourth attempt to arrest Mr Melaye by the police in 2018.

The police, in a statement by its spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, while speaking on the reason for laying siege to Mr Melaye’s residence, said the senator, alongside his ‘armed thugs’, shot one Danjuma Saliu, a sergeant, in July 2018.

Rather than debunk or admit the fresh allegations made by the police, Mr Melaye simply said in a tweet, on Tuesday, that he is being wise and not scared, by hiding.
