The Nigerian police say Senator Dino Melaye is fit for trial. The authorities say the embattled Senator is pretending to be ill.
Police spokesman Jimoh Moshood said all tests conducted on the senator proved negative, an indication that his health may not be challenged.
A lawyer for the police says Mr Dino is feigning sickness in order to avoid trial .
Senator Dino is at the police hospital in Garki where the police are attempting to evacuate him to Kogi state to face charges of conspiracy and attempted culpable homicide.
They say the crime for which he is being accused was committed in July 2018.
Melaye urged the police to relocate him to National hospital after three days of treatment at Police hospital in Garki, Abuja. Certifying the Senator medically fit for trial, the Police Authority described the Senator’s request and actions so far as Nigerian Home video part 2.
The Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of Police Medical, AIG Kaomi Amadu also faulted Melaye’s claim based on the medical record from an expert.
The Police had alleged the controversial Melaye, on 19th July 2018, with his armed thugs attacked Police personnel, shot and wounded SGT Danjuma Saliu on stop and search duty along Aiyetoro Gbede, Mopa Road in Kogi State.
Melaye fainted on Friday in front of the waiting police team. He was revived of a suspected asthma attack before being taken to a Police hospital.
