Senator Dino Melaye was, Tuesday, docked by the police over allegations bordering on attempted suicide, attempt to escape from custody and damage of police property.

Mr. Melaye was arraigned before Justice Silvanus Oriji of a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Apo on a six-count charge.

The senator, however, denied the charge and was subsequently admitted to a N5m bail with two sureties in like sum stands.

The prosecuting counsel, Dr Alex Izinyon (SAN), had told the court that the defendant committed the alleged offences on April 24. He said Dino, while being conveyed in a police vehicle to Lokoja, forced his way out and escaped.

Izinyon further said that the defendant sat on the ground, holding a substance in one hand threatening to drink it to kill himself so that he can put the police officers in trouble.

He also said that the defendant broke the glass of the vehicle with his elbow and caused damage to police property.
