The police recently declared Melaye wanted after he was accused of supplying arms to some murder suspects, who allegedly implicated him.

The senator have since denied the allegations, describing the allegations as politically motivated.

He was later put on INTERPOL’s wanted list, which the agency refused to enforce, arguing that it would not be dragged into local politics.
