Officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission were at the National Assembly Complex , Abuja , on Tuesday , to serve the embattled lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District , Senator Dino Melaye , the petition by his constituents to recall him .
The officials , however , met Melaye ’s office ( Room 2. 13 , New Building , Senate Wing ) locked. Our correspondent sighted his aides, who could have received the notice on his behalf , around the Senate chamber .
Four ‘Ghana -Must – Go ’ bags , believed to be containing the recall documents and court papers , were sighted at the door to the office .
While some of the INEC officials waited at Melaye ’s door , others took positions at various entrances between the office and the Senate chamber .
While the officials waited , Melaye was in the chamber for the day ’s plenary .
The senator, however , hurriedly left the chamber at about 1 .45 pm , while the session was ongoing, rushed into a waiting car at the main entrance of the complex – the closest to the chamber – and drove off.
