The road leading to the hospital where Dino Melaye is being treated has reportedly been barricaded by the police.
The senator representing Kogi west was admitted to the hospital after he reportedly attempted to escape police custody.
Reports said the lawmaker was being transported to Kogi by the police when some hoodlums double-crossed the police vehicles and whisked Melaye into their own vehicle. The senator was said to have fallen and injured in the process.
According to The Cable, police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, led dozens of officers of the hospital to prevent another escape of Melaye.
The fierce-looking policemen were said to have created tension when they arrived at the hospital, as they arrested two staff of the hospital for an unknown offence.
They were said to have summoned the officials of the hospital and demanded to know the ward/room Melaye was being treated.
The officers were still looking for the senator in the hospital as at the time of filing this report.
Meanwhile, the road leading to the hospital is said to have been barricaded by the gun-wielding security operatives.
The police had declared Melaye wanted after he failed to honour invitations extended to him. He was accused of criminal conspiracy following the killing of a resident of the state.
The criminals who carried out the killing allegedly confessed during interrogations that Melaye and some politicians hired them to cause mayhem in the state.
