Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has disclosed the reason behind Senator Dino Melaye’s decision to jump out of a moving police vehicle taking him to Lokoja, Kogi State to face trial for gun running.
Melaye is currently recuperating at the National Hospital following the injuries sustained during the fall.
In a tweet, Murray Bruce, representing Bayelsa State in the National Assembly said Melaye had to jump out of the police vehicle to save his life.
The Bayelsa senator who visited Melaye at the hospital said police teargassed Melaye who is asthmatic two times in the vehicle that he could barely breathe and so had to jump out of the vehicle to save his life.
Read Murray-Bruce tweet: ”Just met with @dino_melaye. Very sad to hear what transpired. Dino is asthmatic, yet while in transit, the police gassed him & he could barely breathe. Second time they gassed him, he had to force his way out of the vehicle. Dino literally escaped death. SAD!”
