The road to Senator Dino Melaye’s eventual surrender was full of action, suspense and intrigue and its afterward was not short of drama.
The Senator representing Kogi West was caged in his Maitama, Abuja house for eight days by the police as they laid siege at his house in an attempt to arrest him for an attempted culpable homicide.
The police have accused Dino and his gang of shooting one of its officers in the line of duty at the Senator’s hometown in Aiyetoro Gbedde, Kogi State.
While Dino eventually bowed to the pressure of police and surrendered on Friday evening, prominent social media commentators like; Kayode Ogundamisi, Reno Omokri and Senator Shehu Sani, have something to say about the drama that played out and still playing out between Dino and the police.
See their reactions below:

“So funny that policemen ran away from fighting Boko Haram and refused to leave @dino_melaye’s house until they got him.

“Distinguished Senator Dino should be treated with dignity and honour and his fundamental rights respected, now that he has reportedly turned himself up to the Police,” Shehu advised
