Nigeria Police Force Files Charge Against Dino Melaye, For Illegal Weapons Possession

The Nigeria Police Force has filed a charge against embattled Senator Dino Melaye, for alleged illegal weapons possession.



In the charge filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, the police said a pump-action gun was recovered from Melaye’s Kogi house during a raid in his house in July last year.


The charge sheet marked, FHC/ABJ/CR/07/2019 reads

“That you, Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West district in the 8th National Assembly, on or about the 20th day of July 2018, at about 12.30 hours under the jurisdiction of this honourable court, unlawfully had in your possession one automatic pump-action shotgun and 20 cartridges, which were recovered at your residence located in the Ayetoro Gbede area of Kogi State, when a search warrant was executed on the directives of the Nigeria Police Force at your above mentioned residence under your control and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 27(1)(a)(i) of the Firearms Act Cap F28 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.”


Eight persons including six policemen and two men who were painting Melaye’s house when the policemen came to search the property, have been listed as witnesses against Melaye.
