Senator Dino Melaye, the lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district has been moved to the medical facility of the Department of State Services (DSS) in Abuja.
Nigeria Police Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood, confirmed this to CHANNELS TV in a telephone interview on Friday.
He explained that the lawmaker was indeed taken away from the Police Clinic to another government-owned medical facility after the senator and the police disagreed about his fitness to face trial.
Moshood revealed further that the police have obtained a warrant of arrest to detain the lawmaker.
According to him, the police secured the warrant from a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court to keep Senator Melaye for 14 days, which started from Wednesday, January 9.
