According to The Sun, embattled senator Dino Melaye this afternoon jumped off the vehicle that was conveying him to Kogi state and ran into the thick bush nearby. He was arrested by SARS officers in Abuja this morning and was being transported to Kogi state where he is expected to respond to allegations of sponsoring two assassins.
The assassins were arrested in February and they confessed to have been funded by Melaye.

He was being taken to Kogi state when he jumped off the vehicle and fled into the bush.
