Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West) has stated that he will honour the invitation of the Kogi State Police Command.

Melaye disclosed this on Saturday, a day after the police accused some persons in his convoy of attacking their personnel in Kogi State.

“The account of the police is false and illogical. I will honour the invitation of the Kogi State Police Command on Thursday, despite the attempts on my life,” Melaye told Channels Television.

The Senator had accused the police of shooting at his convoy on his way to inaugurate a project at his constituency on Thursday in Kogi.

He explained that he was riding in a convoy of about 20 vehicles headed for the scheduled event and his cars were the second and third, having being led by the out riding Hilux vehicle of the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The lawmaker noted that the police claimed that the vehicles at the back shot at them and wondered why “they shot at my cars which were in the second and third on the convoy.”

He alleged that the incident clearly indicated an attempt on his life if not for his bulletproof vehicles, claiming that the gunshots were directed at the owner’s sitting side of the cars.

Melaye purported further that after the scenario which played out on the road, there was another attack on his house in Aiyetoro where gunshots were fired sporadically.

He also said he had written to the police and the NSCDC through his lawyer, to seek protection for his planned visit.

The lawmaker claimed that while the NSCDC deployed some personnel to escort him, there was no provision made by the police.
