    If he refuses to get out of his dramatic sickness, then may it be permanent for him. May it be unto him as he has done to his people. At least we understand why Nigeria is a huge joke

    Dino is just making fun of himself. If he is indeed not guilty why disregarding police invitation. He could have went there with his lawyer or group of lawyers to secure his bail, You cannot encourage your thugs to kill an officer of law without expecting any backlash. We need to stop this idea of two tiers of law, one for the rich and another for the poor. If Dino found guilty of criminals conspiracy, let him be pushed in accordance with Nigeria Justice system.

    In the western countries, a lot of public fund/taxes are involved when you deploy government officials ,such as the police to perform duties for hours,let alone days! Melaye should be made to refund the government for the cost of their officials’ time and resources—starting from when he made them wait for days in front of his house and the for the days he took to perform his medical chicanery and charade.
    Apart from paying the tax payers money back,this action will stop accused public figures from holding the law to ransom by stalling and delaying arrests in the future.

    Dino melaye is guiltless of those charges brought against him as long as what he was alleged with is yet to be substantiated in the court. It would be noted that none of Dino melaye’s previous arrest by the security opperatives has led to his prosecution in the court despite overwhelming insubstantive evidences brought against him. All of this unending drama against the high profile oppositional figure only heighten the accuracy of people’s statement that Buhari led-government is only out their to witch-hunt, clampdown and muzzle those perceived as Buhari critics using the instrumentality of the state. Naijagist please keep us update about Dino melaye’s case.
