Senator Dino Melaye, who represents Kogi West Senatorial district at the 8th National Assembly, has taken to his Twitter page to annonce that he escaped from his abductors.
The controversial and outspoken lawmaker who thanked Nigerians for their prayers over his abduction said that he spent 11 hours in the “wilderness”, adding that he was traumatized.
He wrote: “I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!”
Recall that EKSU OLOFOFO News had reported on Thursday that Senator Dino Melaye was abducted by unknown gunmen. This was made public by his colleague in the Senate, Senator Ben Bruce (Bayelsa East) on his Twitter page.
Sharing the news, Bruce had written: “I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Lets be on the watch out. Will keep you updated.”
