The embattled Senator Dino Melaye who was lying lifeless on a stretcher, was on Thursday morning, brought into the Lokoja Senior Magistrates Court 2.
He was brought in a Toyota Hiace Police Ambulance, with the registration number NPF2214D.
Journalists who had laid siege to the courtroom were asked to step out for security screening.
Dino Melaye’s arraignment today follows his discharge from the National Hospital, Abuja, after he was confirmed fit for trial.
Despite being confirmed fit for trial, the embattled Senator has been lying lifeless on a stretcher, even as he arrived Lokoja.
Senator Dino Melaye landed in the National Hospital after he jumped out of a moving police vehicle on April 24 while being conveyed to Kogi State.
He was also said to have resisted a further attempt by the Police to re-arrest him with the help of some persons who allegedly threatened to injure the police officers if they tried to arrest him.
Earlier, the Lawmaker had survived an attempt made by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to facilitate his recall after the verified signatories to the petition for his recall fell short of requirements.
The verification exercise which took place on April 28, climaxed a victory for the embattled Senator following the inability of the signatories to meet the requirements.
For it to have been considered successful, 50 percent, plus one of the signatories to the petition had to be verified.
However, based on the results announced by Professor Ukertor Gabriel Moti, the Declaration Officer for the exercise held in the Senatorial district, indicated that only 18,742 of the 189,870 of the signatories to the petition for the Senator’s recall were verified by INEC.
