The Executive Secretary of the Anti-Corruption Network, Otunba Dino Melaye, was this afternoon arrested and detained in Abuja by stern-looking security operatives. This is coming two weeks after he led a team of protesters to the Eagle Square to over the over N225m bullet-proof car scandal involving the Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah.

Though the reason for his arrest was not disclosed, News Express gathered that the former lawmaker was taken to the Federal Capital Territory Police Command by a team led by an Assistant Superitendent of Police, Patrick Ejo.

The seurity operatives arrived Melaye’s office at about 5:20 p.m. with a warrant of arrest for alleged “Criminal intimidation and threat to life.” He is expected to be arraigned at an Abuja Magisterate’s Court tomorrow.

Melaye before he was whisked away by the security operatives said: “Two police officers are presently with me and they have come to arrest me.

“I do not know my offence; the police officers just told me that they have warrant of arrest on me with a charge of Criminal Intimidation and threat to life.

“But they did not tell me who I intimidated and threatened. I have two ASPs here; one of them is Patrick Ejo. They said they are taking me to FCT State Command.”

After Melaye’s arrest, his house was immediately searched.
