Nigerian Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West, on Wednesday announced that the police attempted to kill him twice during his ordeal with them.

Melaye made the disclosure while announcing his intention to move his seat from the All Progressives Congress wing of the chambers to the Peoples Democratic Party’s wing.
“The Nigerian police attempted to kill me twice, one through the application of a chemical substance and the second time through injection. They actually came with an injection but God intervened,” he said.
