Senator Ben Bruce has revealed the reason why Dino Melaye had to jump out of a moving police bus last week even though he ended up being admitted to the hospital as a result of injuries sustained.

Bruce revealed through his Twitter handle that Melaye was asthmatic but the Police were gassing him while transiting him to Lokoja from Abuja on criminal charges.

The television mogul believed Melaye ‘literally escaped death’ and needed to take the expedient action of jumping out of the police van due to the continued use of gas by the police.
