Contrary to those claims, Melaye’s relatives and many senators have told Reporters that he was never kidnapped it has been cleared that he only staged the whole thing to avoid being charged before a Kogi High Court, SR reports.
Although the senator resurfaced on Friday claiming he “spent 11 hours in the bush”, SR is confirming that he was never kidnapped.
Melaye was scheduled to be brought to court on Thursday before the Magistrate court in Abuja for alleged gunrunning, but the trial could not hold due to the claims by Senator Ben Bruce, quoting Melaye’s brother, that he had been abducted by unknown gunmen.
On Friday, he wrote on Twitter: “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 bush traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!”
