Dino Melaye escapes assassination attempt as gunmen invade his country home

The senator representing Kogi west senatorial district, Dino Melaye, on Saturday escaped assassination attempt on his life as unknown gunmen attacked his residence in Ayetoro-Gbede.

The assailants were said to have invaded the residence at about 12 am, shooting sporadically into the building. After they rain of bullet that lasted over one hour, two of the vehicles parked within the premises were damaged, while part of the building was also destroyed.

Narrating his ordeal to newsmen, the senator said the assailants came in some minutes after 12 midnight and started shooting indiscriminately into his building. He said the hoodlums shot at intervals with little break for more than one hour where two vehicles, a security van and caravan bus were destroyed.

The lawmaker however accused chairman of the local government, Taofiq Isa, of masterminding the attack because of his criticism of the state government. “This attempt to kill me will not stop me from speaking the truth.

If I speak the truth I will die, if I lie I will die. Me, I’ve decided to speak the truth and die. I’m not afraid of death. I only respect men I don’t fear them.”

Melaye also said accused the Police division of Aiyetoro Gbede that allegedly failed to come to his house until 3 hours after the assailants had left despite being a stone thrown from his house.

“The DPO did not come to my house until 3 hours later. Even the area command in Kabba was not notified until I called the CP. I suspect a satanic collabo between Taofiq and the police in Aiyetoro because the duo had a meeting two days ago.

Only God will protect us in this country but definitely not the police”. However, the local government chairman said he had no hand in the alleged attack on the senator.
