The Kogi State High Court sitting in Lokoja on Monday adjourned hearing for the hearing of the bail application of Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West senatorial district to (Thursday) May 10, 2018.

Justice Nasiru Ajanah’s adjourned the hearing till Thursday, May 10.

He said this is as a result of the failure of the lawyers of the Police and Senator Melaye to file their affidavit on the bail application.

The prosecution led by Dr Alex Iziyon (SAN), readied a counter affidavit to the written application for bail by Chief Mike Ezekhome (SAN), Melaye’s counsel, to which the latter had sought the court’s permission to file a “better” affidavit to the counter affidavit by the prosecution.

The embattled senator, who is currently on admission at the national hospital in Abuja was remanded in police custody by the same court over alleged unlawful possession of arms alongside two others in Kogi State.

Melaye was arrested on April 24 after police who raided  his house in Abuja. He sustained injuries after he allegedly jumped from a moving vehicle which was conveying him to Kogi State to be arraigned before the court.
