The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, was on Thursday morning brought into the Lokoja Senior Magistrates' court 2 on a stretcher.

Sen. Melaye was ordered to be remanded in prison by a Magistrate Court in Lokoja, Kogi State.

"If anything happens to him, (Dino) the responsibility will be on the security agency", he said.

"All I can say at this point is that nothing must happen to Senator Melaye".

The controversial senator who was wheeled into the court room in a stretcher was implicated by some eight hoodlums now in police custody for supplying them with weapons.

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

While attempting to travel to Morocco for an official engagement on Monday, April 23, Melaye was stopped by the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

Earlier, speaking under personal explanation, Karimi said in the process of arresting and transporting Dino from Abuja to Lokoja by the police, the lawmaker was involved in an accident and was hospitalised.
