This follows after the Senator was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport Abuja on his way to Morocco.
Immigration officials told him that he is on the Interpol watch list and cannot be allowed to travel out of the country.
But the Immigration officials alleged that he was detained based on an order from Interpol.
His arrest may not be unconnected to his refusal to report at the Force Headquarters in Kogi for questioning.
The police had on April 3, warned the Senator to appear in court ahead of his arraignment on May 10, 2018.
He is to be arraigned on a case of conspiracy and unlawful possession of prohibited firearms already filed before a Federal High Court in Lokoja, Kogi State.
Senator Melaye was later released some hours later.
