Kogi State Police Command, yesterday, declared wanted, Senator Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi West and Mohammed Audu, son of the late governor of the state, Abubakar Audu.
Melaye was declared wanted on a day the six suspects, who accused him of supplying arms to them, including Kabiru Seudu (aka Osama) and Nuhu Salish (aka Small) escaped from custody. The suspects were said to have escaped the ‘A’ division cell in Lokoja, around 3.21 am and forcibly went through the back door.
