Nigerian Immigration Service explains why Senator Dino Melaye was arrested at the airport.
Melaye disclosed this in a tweet on shortly after he was “arrested and stopped” from travelling.
But the spokesman of the Nigerian Immigration Service, Sunday James, told NAN that Melaye was arrested by Immigration officials “based on instruction”.
Senator Melaye’s arrest comes weeks after the Kogi-west lawmaker was declared wanted for allegedly supplying arms to some suspects.
Melaye was declared wanted alongside six others after two of the suspects escaped from Police custody in Lokoja, Kogi state.
