Senator Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi East, says he has regained his freedom after spending 11 hours in the “wilderness”.
Writing via his Twitter handle on Friday, Melaye thanked Nigerians for their prayers while in “custody”.
Melaye tweeted; I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!
THEWILL recalls that Melaye’s brother had raised an alarm on Thursday that the senator had been kidnapped.
Melaye’s reported kidnap was then tweeted by Bayelsa Senator, Ben Murray Bruce, who reported that the Senator’s younger brother called him to inform him of the incident saying Melaye was bundled into a Toyota Sienna while he was travelling to Kogi.
