Melaye was thereafter taken to the head office of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Abuja.

Police had said that the Kogi West lawmaker was wanted for a case of criminal conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide committed on 19 July, 2018.

Spokesman for the police Jimoh Moshood had alleged that Melaye and “his armed thugs” shot and wounded one Sgt. Danjuma Saliu, who was attached to 37 Mobile Force (PMF) on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.

But the senator has since denied the allegation.
