Senator Dino Melaye was on Tuesday docked before an FCT High Court, Apo area of Abuja on a six-count charge, bordering on attempted suicide and attempt to escape from custody.

The embattled lawmaker, who was also charged with damage to police property, however, denied committing the offences proffered against him.

Justice Sylvanus Oriji said that he was aware that the court had granted bail to the defendant when he was arraigned before him on July 25, 2018 on the same charges.

Oriji said that the earlier bail conditions, which included the sum of N5 million and two sureties in like sum were still valid and should be sustained in the current charges.

In the earlier bail condition, Melaye was to produce two sureties who must be directors in the civil service, reside in the FCT, and depose to affidavits of means.

The prosecuting counsel, Dr Alex Izinyon (SAN), said the offences for which the defendant is charged contravened the provisions of Sections 148,153,173,231, 326 and 327 of the Penal Code.

The judge adjourned the case until April 5, for hearing.

Melaye, representing Kogi West senatorial district, was re-elected to the National Assembly during the February 23 general elections.
