Dino Melaye, is currently cooling off at a detention for hardened criminals in Abuja after his arrest, Tuesday morning by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
The embattled lawmaker, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District, and Chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has been having a running battle with the police, since he was named as a sponsor of some robbers, by police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, last month.
The lawmaker, according to reliable sources, was arrested by the SARS and subsequently detained in a facility located opposite the old CBN junction along the Area 1 Expressway.
The SARS detention facility is known for imprisoning hardened criminals arrested for theft, murder, cultism and other criminal acts.
Daily Post, reports that the fiery lawmaker, when contacted on phone, sounded rattled, as background conversation suggested a struggle between himself and some of the operatives, after which his mobile lines were switched off.
