Drama as Dino Melaye displays toothbrush, tissue paper in court, says ‘I’m ready for prison’

Many erupted in laughter at a high court in Abuja on Thursday when Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west, displayed a bottle of coke, tissue paper, toothbrush and toothpaste to journalists after he was arraigned.

The federal government arraigned Melaye on a two-count charge.

The senator was accused of deliberately giving false information to the police to frame Edward David, chief of staff of Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, for an attempted murder on his life.

Melaye was also accused of making a false statement of facts in a phone conversation with Mohammed Abubakar, son of the late Abubakar Audu, former governor of Kogi, with the intention of harming the reputation of Bello’s chief of staff.

Melaye was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 by Olasumbo Goodluck, the judge handling the matter.

But speaking with journalists after the bail, Melaye said he came prepared in case he was not granted bail.

“I came prepared… just in case the judge didn’t grant me bail, I am ready to go to prison,” Melaye said.

His trial will commence on May 16 and May 17.
