Dino Melaye regains freedom, drags IGP to court
The senator representing Kogi West district in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye has regained freedom after over two weeks in detention.
Melaye’s freedom was sequel to the bail granted him by a high court in Abuja on health grounds.
In his ruling, Justice Yusuf Halilu said Melaye should be allowed to attend to his health as he could not be arraigned on a stretcher or on his hospital bed.
Halilu ordered the senator to present three sureties who reside and have property in Abuja, emphasising that one of the sureties must be the clerk of the national assembly who would provide a letter attesting that Melaye will always be available for trial.
After fulfilling his bail conditions, Melaye filed a suit against the inspector-general of police (IGP), seeking that the police should not arrest him.
FBI ‘Honors’ Martin Luther King Jr., 50 Years After Plotting To ‘Neutralize’ Him

"First they ignore you. Then they ridicule you. And then they attack you and want to burn you. And then they build monuments to you," declared socialist leader and union organizer Nicholas Klein in 1914 (in a quote often misattributed to Mahatma Gandhi).

The radical legacy of the civil rights icon — who not only valiantly fought Jim Crow, but also harshly condemned capitalism and spoke out bravely against the US war in Vietnam, alienating the vast majority of the liberal establishment — has been so thoroughly whitewashed that the very same government institutions that wished death on King are now heaping praise on his memory.
