Senator Dino Melaye Denies Being Among Law Makers Who BOOED President Buhari

The embattled senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly , Dino Melaye, has denied social media reports that he was among the federal lawmakers who booed President Muhammadu Buhari on December 19 .

Some federal parliamentarians embarrassed Buhari while presenting the 2018 national budget on that day by passing uncomplimentary remarks on him on the occasion .

But Melaye, who is still recuperating in a police hospital in Abuja, said he could not have been part of his colleagues’ action because he did not attend the event ..

The senator in a statement signed by his media aide , Gideon Ayodele, said the rebuttal was not born out of fear but to put the records straight.
The statement read , “ The attention of Senator Dino Melaye has been drawn to a malicious reference to his person on the social media as one of the lawmakers who booed President Muhammadu Buhari during his 2019 Budget presentation before a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday , December 19 , 2018 .

“ Before now , he ( Melaye) had refused to refute the mischievous social media fabrication for what it is — a cheap lie — Senator Dino Melaye was not in the National Assembly that day .

“ For the avoidance of doubt , Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye was absent at the televised 2019 budget presentation session and hereby challenges anyone with contrary proof to come forward with such . ”
Melaye willingly surrendered himself to the police on Friday , eight days after the security operatives laid siege to his private residence in Abuja .
He collapsed afterwards and was rushed to a police hospital for urgent medical attention .

The Nigeria Police Force has deployed about 60 operatives in the Police Hospital , Garcia , Abuja, where Melaye was being treated .

Checks on Saturday showed that operatives were on duty at the entrance and exit points of the hospital with additional men on the premises .

Melaye was said to have been stabilised by doctors at the hospital where he was taken after he slumped shortly before interrogation at the Special Anti - Robbery Squad facility in Guzape , Abuja.
Sources say that medical personnel were considering a cardiopulmonary test on the lawmaker following certain observations by his doctor .

It was learnt that the doctor might recommend Melaye’ s transfer to a better equipped medical facility for a more robust medical treatment .
The police said the lawmaker was wanted for alleged shooting of one Sgt . Danjuma Saliu , attached to 37 Police Mobile Force while on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede , Mopa Road in Kogi State .

The Force spokesman , Jimoh Moshood , stated that Melaye had repeatedly spurned several invitations asking him to report for investigation into the case of attempted culpable homicide , noting that he would be charged to court after investigation .



  1. Dino booed Buhari, he kept shouting "lies,lies, you're lying"
    Heard bubu Sat quietly when he got back to villa, bowed head down, then raised his right hand angrily after many minutes and said "walahi I will deal with all of them that humiliated me today".

    What they did was wrong booing a sitting President

    1. Is Buhari the first President in the world to get booed? I agree it was disrespectful but life goes on. Buhari should not dwell on that. I think the khaki spirit in him wished he could have sent them all to a military tribunal. Welcome to democracy Buhari.

    2. So you copy ffk’s lie as your news?

  2. I can bet that Dino was among that booed buhari. Dino can never miss me troublemaker

  3. Lols when trouble sleep yanga go wake am, wetin e de findiooooo

  4. Even if you booed him nko?

  5. Dino is being tried for culpable homicide,does Buhari care about boos or abuse?PDP and their many lying agents trying hard to twist the narrative lolzxx. Where is Atiku sef?

  6. I have never seen a bigger coward that this obese malu

  7. Finally, Dino Melaye has been consumed by the same monster he took part in creating 2015. I bet you, he will be regretting ever insulting the freedom he had enjoyed under Goodluck Jonathan.

    1. Dino also got to the position of Senator that he enjoys today through the grace of the same monster. So he enjoys it better than the guy he worked to be kicked out.

  8. Pdp shouldn't have take all these Apc run away back because they are bad publicity. My 2 cents.

  9. Mtcheew...and so, is Buhari the first to be booed?
