Ben Murray-Bruce, senator representing Bayelsa east, says Dino Melaye, his Kogi west counterpart, has been kidnapped.

The Bayelsa senator said the younger brother of Melaye informed him about the development, which TheCable could not independently verify.

William Aya, spokesman of the Kogi command of the Nigeria police force, said he could not confirm the abduction.

“We are not aware of anything like that. Nothing of such has been reported,” he told TheCable.

But Murray-Bruce quoted his colleague’s younger brother as saying a car blocked the vehicle in which Melaye was travelling in en route Kogi, while the senator was overpowered and forced into a Toyota Sienna.

Melaye is among the over 50 federal legislators who pulled out of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday.
