Samuel Melaye, a brother to Senator Dino Melaye, has been ordered to be remanded in Kuje Prison in Abuja.
The court also ordered Amaefula David, Pius Inyang and Mohammed Wazari to be remanded in the same prison following their involvement in aiding Senator Melaye to escape from moving police van.
The order for their remand in prison was made after their arraignment before the Chief Magistrate’s Court, Mpape in Abuja by the police.
The Police’s First Information Report (FIR) had linked them to the Tuesday’s incident, where Melaye reportedly jumped off a police vehicle that was said to be conveying him to Lokoja, Kogi State, where he was to be arraigned before a court on a pending charge.
The defendants were charged with criminal conspiracy, obstruction of public servant from performing his lawful duties, abatement and assault on police officers, offences said to be contrary to sections 97, 85, 267 and 173 of the Penal Code Law.
They pleaded not guilty to the charges when the FIR was read to them on Wednesday.
The police objected to the bail application, following which the presiding magistrate adjourned to April 30 for ruling.
