The Senate on Wednesday called on the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, and the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, to reinstate the withdrawn security details of Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye.

Presiding over plenary, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu said Melaye’s security details be reinstated because the lawmaker’s life was in danger.

Addressing his colleagues, the Kogi West lawmaker said efforts by him to get security details from the police and other security agencies had failed.

Following his claim, Mr Ekweremadu described the issue as that of “personal safety” which was “critical.”

Consequently, the deputy Senate President put Mr Melaye’s prayer to a voice vote.

“He said his security was withdrawn and his life is under threat. It is not something we will gloss over,” Mr Ekweremadu stated.
