Police Seal Off Dino Melaye’s Anti-Corruption ConferenceScores of armed police officers sealed off a Nicon Luxury hotel conference room in the early hours of November 12, 2013, Tuesday, where an anti-corruption conference was planned.
The anti-corruption conference was planned by an organization promoted by former House of Representatives member turned anti-corruption campaigner, Dino Melaye.
The police, including anti-terrorism squads, carried out the seal-off of only the conference room the anti-corruption campaigners rented for the conference.

It is still unclear why the conference room was sealed. The police authority responsible for Abuja, the FCT Command, denied ordering the operation.
“I am not aware of it,” the spokesperson of the command, Altine Daniel, said.
The spokesperson of the Nigeria Police headquarters, Frank Mba, is yet to respond to journalists’ inquiries.
However, Dino Melaye believes the seal-off was ordered by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar.
“The hotel management said the police officers brought an order from the IG,” he said.
“We will never give up, the conference must go on.
“We already know that when you fight corruption, corruption fights back,” Mr. Melaye said.

It would be recalled that the former lawmaker had a recurring battle with the police over anti-corruption protests including that organised to demand the removal and prosecution of Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, over the N255 million armoured car scandal. Mr. Melaye was briefly arrested, during the protest and released some time later.
