The high court located in Lokoja, Kogi state, has granted an interim order for the embattled Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, to be transferred to the National Hospital Abuja.
The order followed a written bail application filed by Melaye's counsel, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), asking for a variation of the remand order placed on him.

In an interview after the order, Ozekhome said that the judge was convinced beyond all reasonable doubts that the Police Clinic facilities in Lokoja could not meet the medical needs of Senator Dino Melaye.
