Dino Malaye claims he was arrested by Jonathan's administration 14 times

Dino Melaye, the Senate committee chairman of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Monday, May 9, revealed that he is one of the most investigated Nigerians. He revealed this in an interview with NAIJ.com when he was asked about his stance as being known as a controversial individual.


While making comments on his lifestyle, Melaye disclosed he was arrested 14 times in the administration of former Goodluck Jonathan and is currently being investigated.

He added that he has never been involved in illegal work because he does not abhor to corruption.

“I am one of the most investigated Nigerians maybe what they are yet to find out is where my placenta was buried and they will have to go to Kano to get that.

“Anyone who has any negative thing about me should please come out. Even right now, I am being investigated, petitions with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), some with the CCB, I even got information that the bureau is investigating me, I laugh at this because it will turn out to be a beautiful nonsense.

“I am a straight Nigerian and have never been involved in anything illegal. Today I can buy a private jet and I will buy one and put a D on it. I did not steal, I cannot steal and I will not steal. I am not frivolous, I know the value of money. I am big time into properties.

“I am a politician. Whatever I do is my business but I will never do anything illegal. I was arrested last year alone by Jonathan’s administration 14 times,” he said.

Nigerians have taken a swipe at the flamboyant lifestyle of the senator. However, some of the aggrieved Nigerians called on the EFCC to probe Melaye as well as reveal to Nigerians his source of wealth.

Some of them are of the view that the anti-corruption war declared by the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is aimed at selected politicians while some are allegedly stealing money.

Meanwhile, the Civil Society Network Against Corruption (CSNAC), an anti-corruption coalition called on the EFCC to probe Senator Dino Melaye over his lifestyle.

In the petition signed by Olanrewaju Suraju, the chairman of CSNAC, the group mentioned several instances of questionable wealth belonging to the senator representing Kogi West senatorial district.

The anti-corruption coalition recalled the media reports claiming that Melaye purchased a home in Abuja estimated at 1.3 billion naira.
