INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kogi State, Prof James Apam, at a stakeholders meeting in Lokoja, said verification of signatures which is the first in the line up of activities for the recall process will be done this Saturday April 28.

The handcuffs were however removed shortly before senators led by the Senate President visited him at the trauma centre of the hospital. "He was being taken to SARS where common criminals like armed robbers are".

"Senator Peter Nwaoboshi is held by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and nobody is allowed to see him".

The Senator has been moved to the National Hospital on Wednesday morning on the instruction of the Police.

The lawmaker was due to be arraigned in court over the charges of criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms alongside Osama and Small who escaped from their prison cell.

He revealed that he had already sent the Deputy Leader of the Senate to go and visit Melaye at the National Hospital Abuja. He is under intensive care.

However, Police said a re-enforced team of officers later trailed Melaye to Zankli Hospital, Abuja where he was re-arrested. He has not eaten for the past 24 hours.

The embattled lawmaker was said to have jumped out of a moving police van conveying him to Lokoja, and was allegedly whisked away by his supporters who were said to have blocked the road with their vehicle. We are trying to resolve that.

Saraki said Melaye's ordeal is an attack on the Senate and called on those in authorities to follow the rule of law.

The NAH spokesman, Dr. Tayo Haastrup, confirmed on Wednesday that Melaye was still receiving treatment, adding that he could not provide information on his health. I think the issue is how we get him out of the situation he is in.

The senate had asked the IGP to appear before it over the alleged illegal maltreatment of Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west.
