Ben Murray-Bruce, the senator representing Bayelsa East, on Monday requested that his embattled colleague from Kogi West, Dino Melaye should resume sitting at the Senate on Wednesday.
The Bayelsa lawmaker stated that the Senate has not been “the same” since the absence of Melaye.
In a tweet, Ben-Bruce wrote, “I want @dino_melaye to come to the Senate on Wednesday even if he is on crutches.
“The @NGRSenate is not the same without Dino! We miss him. I know he is on crutches but I want him to come on Wednesday and I will stand with him.”
Melaye is currently involved in a face-off with the Nigeria Police Force.
The lawmaker, who allegedly jumped-off a police van transporting him to Lokoja, Kogi State, has since been arraigned in a state High Court.
However, Melaye was granted bail by the court.
