Senator Dino Melaye Says He's Not Afraid of Going to Prison Amidst Alleged False Assassination Brouhaha

Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi west, says he is not afraid of going to prison. Melaye said this on Tuesday on the floor of the senate while drawing the attention of the upper legislative chamber to the charges filed against him by the federal government.

The government had accused Melaye of framing Edward David, chief of staff to Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, over the alleged assassination attempt on his life. The senator argued that those who attempted to kill him in April were paraded by the police. He wondered why the federal government would quote the police as saying he gave false information in the naming of the suspects.

Vowing not to be intimidated, Melaye said he would continue to criticise any public office holder. I shall continue to speak. I shall continue to ask questions. I shall continue to criticise any public officer including the president of the federal republic of Nigeria. I have conquered fear, I am not afraid of the prison. The last administration arrested me 14 times, Abacha’s government detained me. Babangida’s government detained me. I am not afraid of the prison. It is built because of human beings but we will not stop speaking the truth.

"In an unjust society, silence is a crime. The battle to bring Nigeria back on track from these criminals in power is a battle of no retreat no surrender and I am ready to fight the federal government on this matter and I will fight with the last drop of my blood.”

  1. He needs to just slow down. He's moving too fast and getting tangled in too many webs. He knows that many people do not care for him and still he is taunting and taunting. He's too old not to act with more wisdom and just chill and go on a low profile.
