Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, representing the Bayelsa East in the National Assembly, on Wednesday, January 9, claimed that the police ordered the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) not to reconnect electricity to the residence of Senator Dino Melaye.
Senator Murray-Bruce said this via his official Twitter handle, @benmurraybruce.
He tweeted: “So after @dino_melaye surrendered himself to @PoliceNG, the Police did a thorough search of his house & found nothing. Yet, the police have refused AEDC from reconnecting his power. Currently, Dino’s kids are left to sleep in darkness and under very horrific conditions.”
Corroborating Senator Murray-Bruce’s allegation, the alleged first son of the embattled Kogi West senator, Josh Melaye, posted on his Instagram page that since their father surrendered to the police on Friday, January 4, they have been kept in horrific condition.
In his post, Josh said they have no light in their house and that he and his siblings buy water to drink. He also alleged that the police have restricted visitors from visiting them
