Simeon Okah, the Vice President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, South South, has condemned the alleged face-off between Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye and the police.
Okah said for Nigeria to become a great nation, the country needs men like the embattled Senator.
Speaking with newsmen over the weekend, the cleric urged Nigerians to ensure that Melaye was “saved” from the police.
According to Okah, “I have concerns for Dino. His hands may not be as clean as a saint; but a man like him has a role to play in building this country.
“We need men like Dino. Let everybody of goodwill fight to see that Dino is released; if he has criminal records, he should face it, but he should not be kept in detention.
“He is intelligent. Let us see how we can save him from the hands of policemen. For a man like Dino, the police should show some level of leniency, because we need people like Dino in this country if we want this country to be great.”
