According to TheCable, hospital ambulance brought the lawmaker at the hospital around 4:25pm, after which he was admitted into the emergency unit.

Unconfirmed reports have it that the security agents had manhandled him and had planned to take him to Kogi, his home state, but Melaye was said to have immediately jumped out of the vehicle, wounding himself in the process.
He is expected to be paraded later this evening among other hardened criminals who implicated him in the crime that necessitated his arrest.
