Senator Ben Bruce has said that the police have rearrested embattled Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye after perfecting his bail condition.

Melaye was on Wednesday arraigned at the Chief Magistrates Court, Wuse for criminal conspiracy and granted bail for N90 million, but was re-arrested immediately to face other criminal charges against him in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Decrying the act, Dogara, at a plenary of the House, said the security agency would be held responsible should anything bad happen to the federal lawmaker.

"So, my admonition to the security agencies is to do everything possible to ensure that his life is secured first before prosecution".

Melaye is being accused of collaborating with suspects arrested for kidnapping, illegal possession of arms and political thuggery in Kogi state.

"That is without mincing of words; because I have not seen a country where someone will be arraigned in a stretcher; where he is not even in the right frame of mind to even take a plea".

Melaye's dare-devilry, said to have been aided by two Hilux trucks that blocked the police vehicle, led Melaye to a private hospital in Abuja, where police pounced on him again and took him to the National Hospital.

The charge brought against him can not be confirmed at the time of this report.

Ozekhome quoted Section 60 of the Penal Code which stated that the offence of conspiracy is bailable according to the Kogi State Administration of Criminal Justice, to support his position.

He had earlier been driven to Lokoja from Abuja on Thursday by the police in an ambulance. The presiding judge, Olasumbo Goodluck, adjourned till May 16 and May 17 for the commencement of trial.
