Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West in the Senate, today clocked 45 years old and spent his birthday in the hospital.
The vocal senator has been receiving medical care at the hospital following the saga with the police in the past week.
Dino Melaye has been charged with culpable homicide, over an alleged attack on a police sergeant in Kogi State.
After he allegedly failed to honour police invitations, the police laid siege to his Abuja residence for eight days. It ended with him coming out of the house on Friday.
He was taken to the headquarters of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, from where he was transferred to the police clinic for medical attention.
The outspoken Dino has been in the hospital since and has failed to show up at the court, revealing that he is unfit to attend the court.
This did not stop his colleagues from wishing him a happy birthday as he clocked 45 years on Monday.
There were congratulatory messages from a number of his colleagues including the Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and PDP Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce.
