The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has claimed that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has resolved to intimidate those it sees as enemies in the National Assembly.
Saraki also alleged that the ordeal of Senator Dino Melaye was one of the attempts to silence both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and other lawmakers in the National Assembly.
He made these remarks in Jos, the Plateau state capital on Saturday, January 12, during the opposition party’s presidential campaign rally.
Some masked police officers reportedly stormed the hospital where Melaye was recuperating, carried him into an unmarked vehicle and whisked him off.
The officers forced the lawmaker, who was on the hospital bed, into an unmarked vehicle and drove him away on Friday, January 11.
The police had however released a statement to announce that Senator Melaye was moved from the Police Clinic in Area 1, Garki, Abuja to one of the medical facilities of Department of State Service (DSS).
Melaye had been admitted to hospital, hours after he surrendered himself to a police team investigating a charge of attempted murder.
The police revealed this on Friday in a statement by spokesman Jimoh Moshood. He said the senator was in stable condition.
Moshood said before Melaye was moved to the unidentified hospital, he faced an interrogation by the police team probing his involvement in the shooting of a policeman by thugs embedded in a convoy of the senator on July, 19, 2018 in Kogi state.
