After days of dodging the Independent National Electoral Commission officials, INEC on Tuesday morning dumped recall notice at the National Assembly Office of embattled Senator Dino Melaye (Kogi West constituency) in Abuja.
It is the notice of his recall instituted by his constituents.
But the office was under lock and key, as the staff, having got wind of the visit, had quickly disappeared.
As of the time of filing this story, the documents had been left in front of the office, as the INEC officials could not get in.
But while they were waiting, a group of Melaye loyalists arrived and started to query and challenge those who had dropped the bags, a situation that nearly resulted in fisticuffs.
Speaking to journalists at the weekend, the controversial senator claimed that the window provided by the constitution for the service of the recall petition on him had elapsed.
