The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district in the National Assembly, Sen. Dino Melaye has vowed to approach the International Criminal Court at The Hague, Netherlands over his case with the Federal Government.

He made this known in a  personally-signed terse statement posted on his Twitter page on Saturday morning.

Recall that Melaye is being prosecuted both in Abuja and Lokoja, Kogi State by the police.

In Abuja, he is accused of attempted suicide and damaging government property, after he attempted to jump out of a moving police vehicle. Justice  Olasunbo Goodluck has however adjourned the case indefinitely.

The ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes, and it remains to be seen how Melaye will go about the case as the ICC does not entertain cases from individuals.
