The police had laid siege to the Abuja home of the senator representing Kogi West on Friday.
Melaye is wanted by the police who say they have an arrest warrant for the senator over allegations that he shot and injured a police sergeant in Kogi State.
They also vowed to continue the siege until they are able to arrest the senator.
The action of the police has been condemned by the Senate president, Bukola Saraki.
