The senator representing Kogi West on the floor of the Nigerian Senate has been implicated in yet another alleged scandal.

The latest scandal comes hot on the heels of allegations made by an online news agency, Sahara Reporters, against the politician which held that he did not graduate from the department of Geography at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.

Following the allegation, examination officers at the institution revealed that the Senator graduated with a third class degree after which he shared photo from his NYSC days and another of his Masters degree thesis.

Following the scandal which had led the Nigerian senate to initiate a probe into the educational background of the Kogi state Senator, Sahara reporters further revealed that Dino Melaye made only three credits in his West African Certificate Examination, WAEC.

Sahara Reporters has however in its latest claim alleged that the Senator reportedly assassinated an election tribunal witness in 2007.

The U.S. Government’s report on the human rights case alleges that; “On August 19, Victor Obafaiye, the principal witness for the Action Congress in the Kogi State election tribunal, was assassinated. Obafaiye was crucial to the case as he was supposedly in possession of documents, that would have served as evidence of election tampering by PDP House of Assembly candidate Dino Melaye.”
