Channelstv confirmed the evacuation through the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Jimoh Moshood after the event.
Armed and masked policemen stormed the Police Clinic in Garki Abuja where Mr Melaye was currently receiving treatment.
Punch News reported that the Senator first intention was to take him to Kogi State for interrogation but was diverted to the Department of State Services medical facility along Airport Road, Abuja following the public outcry.
The Police had fingered Mr Melaye in a shooting of one Sgt. Danjuma Aliu by suspected political thugs.
Monday, the Senator disclosed to journalists that he was not strong enough and requested to be moved to Alliance Hospital or the National Hospital in Abuja but the Police disputed, claiming Mr Melaye was receiving a better treatment at its clinic.
Melaye was rushed to the Police Clinic last week Friday after he reportedly slummed before the police.
The embattled lawmaker had barricaded himself in his private residence in Maitama, Abuja for eight days until his colleagues reportedly convinced him to surrender.
