But the Interim order the Chief Judge granted is to enable the senator receive medical attention, following the lack of facilities at the Police Clinic Lokoja where he is been held in police custody.

Dino’s counsel in his application for bail, prayed the court for a speedy trial of the matter, said because of the critical health condition of his client, he (Melaye) should be transfered to the National Hospital, Abuja for proper medical care, before the next Adjoined date.

Chief Ozekheme, through a consolidated motion, added that only the living stands trial, urged the prosecution counsel to heed to the request to save the life of his client.

The Prosecution Counsel, Alex Iziyon SAN, did not object to the consolidated motion.

Justice Ajanah while granting the prayers of the defendant’s counsel seeking for Senator Melaye to be transferred to National Hospital Abuja agreed that, “Only the living can stand trial”.

Ajanah said the interim order became necessary as the prosecution could not proffer a Federal prison in Abuja that has the required health facilities that will take care of the health condition of Senator Melaye.

He described the case as one that present an interesting scenario, ordered the Commissioner of police be served through his counsel in court, while the Senator be taken to National Hospital Abuja, under the custody of the Police.

The case has been adjourned to Monday May 7th, for both parties to argue for the bail condition of Senator Melaye.
