Kogi APC demands arrest, prosecution of Dino Melaye



The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State has called on security agencies to immediately arrest the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Saturday’s Governorship election, Senator Dino Melaye, for alleged cyber crime he reportedly confessed to in a live television programme.

The Kogi APC Governorship Campaign Council said, for Melaye, who was defeated at the polls, to have claimed on national TV that he had access to the back-end server of the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) was “like walking into the prison yard and demanding to be locked up.”

The Director, Media and Publicity/Spokesman of the Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo, who spoke at a “Thank You Press Conference” in Lokoja, the state capital, on Tuesday, said security agencies had no tedious job to do “on a suspect who confesses to a crime.”

“Dino Melaye has openly confessed that he hacked into the back-end of the Independent National Electoral Commission. He should be arrested and prosecuted for cyber crime,” Fanwo said.

He lambasted the former Senator for saying the INEC Chairman’s children should be ashamed of him, saying this was uncalled for, unethical and immoral.

“Are Dino Melaye’s children proud of his shameless physical combats on the floor of the National Assembly? Are his children proud of the fact that their mother levelled allegations of physical injuries against their father? Are Dino’s children proud of him?

“Dino Melaye was never in the race for the Governorship. The perennial contestant was in it for business and we do not see his allegations as anything more than the ranting of a thoroughly rejected political jobber.
