BREAKING: Court Refuses To Order Police To Leave Dino Melaye’s House

Court Refuses To Order Police To Leave Dino Melaye’s House

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has refused to order the Nigerian Police Force to vacate the residence of the senator representing Kogi west constituency, Dino Melaye.

 

The senator had approached the court through an exparte motion seeking the intervention of the court to order the police to vacate his Abuja home, located  at Number 11, Sangha Street, off Mississippi Avenue, Maitama.

Shortly after hearing the submissions of Nkem Okoro from the law firm of Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Justice N. E. Maha refused to grant the prayer.

Rather, Justice Maha ordered for accelerated hearing of the substantive suit which she adjourned to January 14, 2019.

She further ordered that the case file be returned to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Abdul Kafarati, for re- assignment in view of the fact that her sitting as a Vacation Judge ends today (Thursday).

The police have insisted on arresting Mr Melaye, accusing him of involvement in the killing of a police officer.

The controversial senator is already facing two separate charges of attempted suicide and allegedly arming criminal suspects.
