However , the two suspects charged alongside Mr . Melaye — Kabir Seidu , aka Osama; and Nuhu Salihu aka Smally — were in court .
The trial magistrate , Sulyman Abdalah , had , at the last hearing, fixed Wednesday , August 9 , to commence trial following the complaints from Melaye that he was attacked on his way to Lokoja to honour an invitation from the Police.
When the case was called on Wednesday , his lawyer, Barrister Yemi Mohammed , who stood in for Chief Mike Ozekhome ( SAN ) , told the court that his client could not be present in court on health grounds .

Mohammed presented a medical report to that effect , a move that was not opposed to by the legal representative of the Kogi State Police Command, Theophilus Oteme.
The two alleged accomplices , however , applied for bail , saying they have been suffering for a crime they knew nothing about .

Consequently , Abdalah adjourned the case till August 21 for the bail applications of the two alleged accomplices and adjourned to September 20 for hearing in the case of Senator Dino Melaye.
