Senator Dino Melaye, aka the “singing senator” has just thrown the Nigerian digital community into a frenzy. This he did with a post of his multi-million naira mansion on Instagram.
We have seen him flaunt his wealth and display an ostentatious lifestyle, so it is little or no surprise to us. But for Nigerians, there has been mixed reactions from social media which suggests that the senator was inconsiderate with his Instagram post.
The native of Kogi, Dino Melaye became an Instagram sensation after his antics and refusal to succumb to interrogation over the alleged shooting of one Sgt. Danjuma Aliu.
The embattled lawmaker was reported to have faked the state of his health as he slumped shortly before interrogation by SARS operatives and was taken to an undisclosed hospital for medical attention.
After holing up in his residence to avoid arrest by policemen for the alleged homicide, Senator Dino Melaye later surrendered to the Police and was taken to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad office, Guzape, Abuja, for interrogation.
Dino Melaye is quite the personality, but then again the media has him in a different light. To some, he feeds off like a comic character with his occasional jeers, and to others, he fits right into the intersection between the joke that is politics and the people.
