Embattled Kogi-west Senator, Dino Melaye, has narrated how he was allegedly tied up and “hurled into a dark solitary confinement waiting for the butchers knife” during his arrest by security agents.

Melaye was on Wednesday granted bail by a Kogi State High Court sitting in Lokoja.

He is being tried for allegedly being an accomplice to some suspected criminals in the north-central state.

Narrating his ordeal in detention, the outspoken lawmaker said in a statement released on Monday that terror was unleashed on him because he stood for the truth.

“They, unleashed an endless barrage of physical, psychological, metaphysical and emotional torture and assault on me, but, through the power of the Most High, and you the good people of Nigeria, we have once again, seen the triumph of truth over lies and good over evil,” the lawmaker said.

According to him, “The state unleashed its raw power on me and released a 200 man-strong fully armed policemen – on a man without a knife nor a bullet. It did this because I called injustice by its name and called for accountability.

“For this they sought to break my spirit and destroy me permanently. In their moment of reign, I was fully shackled.

“With my hands tied to my back, and hurled into a dark solitary confinement waiting for the butcher’s knife, you, my people stood by me. You came against a raging fire and stood up against tyranny, lies, filthy lucre, injustice, persecution and greed,” he added.

Melaye thanked the leadership of the Senate and Nigerians in general for standing with him throughout his trial, vowing not to relent in standing for the truth.
