Dino Melaye’s Bail Application Adjourned Till Thursday May 10th

The Chief Justice of Kogi State High Court, Justice Nasiru Ajanah, has adjourned hearing on the bail application of embattled senator, Dino Melaye till Thursday, May 10th.

Recall that Dino was re-arrested last week and arraigned in a Kogi magistrate court for alleged possession of fire arms and funding a criminal group.

The magistrate court last week ordered that he be remanded in police custody till June 11th for commencement of the case.

His bail application was heard by the court this morning. According to the Chief Judge, the adjournment 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 embattled senator is currently on admission at the national hospital in Abuja.
