The representative of Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, has been reportedly arrested by the police.
Melaye, according to available information, was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on his way to Morocco.
He was said to have been aboard the flight that was scheduled for take-off alongside other passengers when the plane was stopped.
All the passengers were subsequently ordered to disembark, including the senator.
The police had summoned Melaye before now in a case of alleged gun running.
He was accused of having spurned the invitation.
But Melaye denied having received any police summons.
