More trouble appears to be in the offing for the embattled member representing Kogi West at the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), yesterday in Lokoja, announced that it will conduct the signature verification exercise for his recall in seven local councils on Saturday.

"The Okun Development Association equally appeal to all peace loving citizens of goodwill in this country who are in a position to do so, to step in and assist in the resolution of the problem and demand that the security and safety of Senator Dino Melaye be guaranteed in and out of custody", they stressed.

Concise News had reported on Wednesday that the nation's upper legislative chambers summoned Idris to appear before lawmakers on Thursday. This action, whether we want to admit it or not, is a threat to this democracy we are all fighting for.

"We are about to go into an election period, and if these are the kind of excesses we will see from those responsible to protect us, then it is a cause for concern".

The IG sent a Deputy IGP in charge of Operations, Habila Joshak, who was turned back by the Senate.

In his remarks, Saraki said it had shown from the emotions displayed by the senators that the matter "has gone beyond us sending representatives".

"We tried to see him but the instruction is that only Senator Kaka and Abu Ibrahim have the permission to see him".

Senator Chukwuka Utazi, who seconded the motion, described it as an important motion that should be given all the attention it deserves.

"He is being monitored and we continue to pray for him that he fully recovers from his predicament".

Briefing the Senate about the visit, Na'Allah said the police and the hospital had not fed Melaye since they arrested him for fear of being implicated.

He was later transferred to National Hospital by men of the Nigeria Police for treatment.

On her part, senator Oluremi Tinubu urged the chamber to "address issues, when we begin to join different issues".

Melaye, who was moved to the National Hospital from Zankili Hospital, also in Abuja, sustained injuries, on Tuesday, in a bid to escape from policemen taking him to Lokoja in Kogi State by jumping out of the vehicle in which he was being taken.

Etteh and Momoh later led the lawmakers to the National Trauma Centre within the premises where Melaye was being treated.
