The presiding judge of the FCT High court in Maitama, Abuja, Justice Halilu, gave the order after the counsel representing Senator Melaye, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), told the FCT High court in Maitama, Abuba presided by Justice Halilu, that his client (Senator Dino Melaye) had been in custody beyond the number of days which was stated by the law in the constitution.
Recall that at the time when Dino Melaye got arrested, he further went on to surrender to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF). However, the senator representing Kogi west constituency, Senator Dino Melaye, slumped just minutes after he had surrendered to the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and was then taken to the hospital for treatment.
It is, however, unidentified of the certain amount of money which was paid by the counsel representing Senator Dino Melaye, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), in order to release the Senator which represents the Kogi west constituency.
The basic reason for the release of Senator Dino Melaye was because he was kept in police custody for more than the time he was meant to have stayed there without facing trial in court.
