Ex-reps member Dino Melaye arrested for protesting against Oduah

Former House of Reps member and Executive Director, Anti-Corruption Network, Dino Melaye was this afternoon arrested by the Nigerian police during a protest at the Federal Secretariat in Abuja.

Dino led a group of protesters to the Federal Secretariat, Abuja around noon today, calling for the sack of the Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, over the purchase of two BMW armoured cars.

Drama ensued during the protest as another group emerged from nowhere to stage a counter protest to drum up support for the minister.

The police led by an Assistant Commissioner of Police in the FCT, Sunday Olukoya, arrived at the scene and promptly arrested Dino Melaye's group. They were taken away in a Toyota Hilux van, marked NPS 21280 at about one this afternoon.

So what now?
We are back to Military rule where people aren't free to protest,peacefully?
If their protest wasn't violent and didn't run foul of the dictates of the constituton then this arrest is as outrageous as Mrs Stella's thieving act.

Is Melaye and his fellow travelers not seeing the rot in Lagos State concessionary agreement as recently exposed? Why is he and other so-called SW activist engaging in conspiracy of silence on that, but find it easy to campaign against a very hard-working member of the FEC, the most effective Aviation Minister in the past 2 decades. Is is because Fashola and Tinubu are untouchabe, while Stella is an easy prey?

Well, we have good news for you, Oduah Stella will not be hounded out of office by clowns and womanisers such as Dinosour Melaye.

I don't have anything against Ms Oduah but what is wrong is wrong and we should have a zero tolerance on corruption.

Dino,
clean hands doctrine n. a rule of law that a person coming to court with a lawsuit or petition for a court order must be free from unfair conduct (have "clean hands" or not have done anything wrong) in regard to the subject matter of his/her claim. His/her activities not involved in the legal action can be abominable since it is considered irrelevant. As an affirmative defense (positive response) a defendant might claim the plaintiff (party suing him/her) has a "lack of clean hands" or "violates the clean hands doctrine" because the plaintiff has misled the defendant or has done something wrong regarding the matter under consideration. Example: A former partner sues on a claim that he was owed money on a consulting contract with the partnershiip when he left, but the defense states that the plaintiff (party suing) has tried to get customers from the partnership by spreading untrue stories about the remaining partner's business practices.

Linda what you should do with this ur powerful platform, instead of silly Amebo (which has made ur platform powerful anyway) is to call for an opinion poll for people who want stella oduah sacked or nor.

What kind of mess is this. so we still have people who will protest for the minister to remain in office,no wonder they say corruption is not something that can be flushed out easily,its us who are corrupt. the police too are corrupt what wrong did melaye do that they are arresting him. what about the anti protesters,they too have a leader

B4 u can gather for any kind of protest u must get a police report...am sure they didn't have it(d police wldnt give dem an approval)..dats probably why they were arrested.maybe d pro-oduah protesters had an approval maybe not,but dis is naija,any1 on d side of the govt wins

@ anon 2.45pm u r very stupid infact dat word 'stupid' is over rated for u. They r spending d tax payers money and someone is fighting for ur right nd u use ur hand to type nonsense. May God forgive u. U r still a baby. U sound like someone dat is still in school(nt yet working) cos if u r u wodnt say dat bt not withstanding it is nt only workers dat pay tax now. Everybody is paying tax(vat) one way or anoda weda u buy gala from d road side or u buy cloth from d market u wod soon pay tax cos d people u bot from are paying tax and d reason dat tin is in a high price is bcos of d tax on it. So pls don't say d man is agbaya cos u r sounding with someone who is joking with his/her future. No good roads, electricity,job and she is buying car. Asuu is on strike and she is spending money on vanity instead of dem to tink of how to better d society and raise good leaders who wod b able to make better cars 2mowo dey r spendin anyhow. Am a student and I support the asuu strike if d minister of aviation can be given millions of naira for 2 cars den asuu should b given d money, it is painful dat most ministers children r nt schooling here. Enough is Enough. Infact dey should b a law dat if u must take up any leadership role in Nigeria den ur family must live here. Nigeria is like dis bcos d so called people ruling us don't feel our pains. Dere family is enjoying our sweat in any man's land. Shame on our leaders. Shame on our celebrities also. I say shame to them cos dese celebrities ve voice dat can be held and no one wod hold them back cos dey ve got back up. We can't spend 4months of our life @ home only for dem to call off d strike with only a promise. Den nxt year we strike again. Dey should settle everytin nd don't take no for an answer. For dos saying dey should call off d strike cos dey want to graduate. U r quick to graduate bt where u go work no Job. We ve had enough. Asuu should teach d nation a lesson. Don't receive less receive all. These is our right after all students also pay tax.

You must definitely be among those looting this nation money. Someone is involve in mismanagement of fund, air mishaps under nose calling it an act of God; one of the most world stupidest statement a leader can make. Lazy woman mindset. That quotation will forever be in record. I doubt if she pay unscheduled and spontaneous visit to this airports at least once a month. She will just sit in that Abuja and expect things to work fine by an act of God. She is highly responsible for any consequences. And you think she should stay.
Besides as for Fashola and Tinubu, they are free to probe if there is anything. That concession thing has been stop if I am right which is due pub outcry.
