Contrary to widespread speculation that Senator Dino Melaye was abducted by unknown masked men, the Department of State Service (DSS) has revealed that he was brought to their medical facility.

The DSS confirmed that Senator Melaye was moved from the Police Clinic in Area 1, Garki, Abuja to its own medical facility in the city.

In a statement, DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya, said the abduction story was far from the truth.

“The fact is that it was the Police that brought him to the DSS facility after obtaining a 14-day detention warrant with effect from 9th January, 2019. The aim of bringing him to the Service’s facility is to complement Police efforts in giving the Senator a deserved medical attention.

 

“Consequently, the Service, in line with medical ethics and spirit of inter-agency cooperation, accepted him. This clarification has become necessary in order to address the false allegation that hooded men suspected to be DSS operatives abducted the Senator from the Police hospital”.

Melaye was arrested in connection with the shooting of a police officer in Kogi state in July. He surrendered to the police after a week of being under police seige in his house in Abuja
