Police say the lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Dino Melaye, is in good health and fit to stand trial.
The Assistant Inspector General of Police, Medical, Mr Kaomi Ahmadu, disclosed this to reporters at the Police Hospital, Garki in Abuja.
“All this long, we have been managing him and thank God he is in good health now,” the AIG said.
“At any moment, if there is any course for us to invite a specialist or take him to a specialist centre, we oblige him. He also has a respiratory rate of 20 per minute; so, by and large, he is in sound health.”
Although Senator Melaye claimed he needed further and better care, the AIG said the police would continue to provide good and quality medical assistance for him.
