Melaye made his first appearance on Tuesday since his episode with the Nigeria Police in January.

The Senator addressed members of his party at the National Executive Council meeting of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He criticized Buhari over the order he gave to the Security agencies on the snatching of ballot boxes.

Buhari had ordered security agencies to “ruthlessly deal” with anyone who is involved in the snatching of ballot boxes.

Melaye was detained in January after he was declared wanted for a case of criminal conspiracy and his alleged involvement in homicide alleged to have been committed on July 19, 2018.

The Nigeria police laid siege at his Maitama home, and the Senator finally surrenders after days of locking himself indoor.

Melaye opened his house after eight day siege, however, he slumped and was rushed to the nearest clinic under the strict supervision of the police.
