A heavy clash occurred at the Chief Magistrate court, Mpape, Abuja earlier today between some lawyers and police officers over the detention of two lawyers and relatives of Senator Dino Melaye.

9News Nigeria  gathered that David Amaefula and Pius Udo-Inyang, who are of the law firm of Messrs Rickey Tarfa & Co. Abuja Office, were on Tuesday, April 24 and 25 arrested by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) office Guzape after they were dispatched to the Zankli Medical Centre, Mabushi, Abuja to secure justice for Senator Melaye, who was being admitted there.

Two other persons including a cousin to Melaye and his friend were also arrested during the raid. Magistrate Zubairu on Monday granted the defendants bail in the sum of N200,000 and one surety each in like sum, adding that the sureties must be resident in the FCT.

All hell broke loose when over 50 armed policemen deployed in the court attempted to seize placards from protesting lawyers. The over 100 lawyers in the court premises resisted the move.

The police officers then encircled the lawyers and demanded that they leave the court premises. This attracted stiff opposition from the lawyers.
