Senator Dino Melaye resurfaced on Friday after reports went round on Thirsday that he had been kidnapped.
He took to Twitter on Friday morning to say that he escaped an attack even though some Nigerians doubted the report on Thursday saying the controversial senator might have faked his kidnap to avoid going to court.
He tweeted: “I thank God once again for escaping another dangerous attack. I also thank Nigerians for their prayers and show of Love. Spent 11 hours in the wilderness traumatized but God preserved me. God is the best and in whom ONLY I trust. They will continue to try. WE SHALL OVERCOME!!!”
Mr Melaye had twice claimed alleged assassination attempts on his life, only for the police and some leaked phone conversations of himself to cast doubts about the claim.
