Police arrest thugs who threw stones at Senator Dino Melaye in Kabba (Photos/video)

Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West) was attacked in Kabba, during the Kabba Day Celebration, when a couple of thugs started throwing stones, sachets of water and other things at him.

He was invited alongside the governor of the state, Yahaya Bello, who was absent as at the time, although he was in already in Kabba for the programme.

The Guardian reports that the ugly development started when the Master of Ceremony beckoned on the Senator to present his speech and make his donation before the arrival of the governor to the Kabba township stadium, venue of the event.

Shortly after his speech and donation of N3 million, as Melaye was stepping out of the podium heading towards his bulletproof Mercedes Jeep, the thugs began the attack.

Although the senator escaped, some of the thugs were arrested and taken away in a Prison vehicle even as security men resorted to using tear gas to control the rowdy situation.

The senator shared a photo of two of the thugs arrested on Instagram and accused the governor of sending thugs after him.

He wrote: 
"Another version of Kabba Day held in Royale Grand Hotel (Kolawole's Hotel) as Senator Dino Melaye sent panic into d mind of Gov. Yahaya Bello. What an act of cowardice by Gov as d Chief Security Officer of state to have left Kabba without being able to attend an auspicious occasion tagged Kabba Day depite sending tuggs to attack SDM"
