Veteran singer Ayefele was contracted by the Senator to entertain his guests and well wishers at the event.
Melaye, who is aspiring to be governor of Kogi State in November threw caution to the wind by spraying Ayefele with money as the musicians showered praises on him.
The senator was seen with bundles of money as he danced with joy and did the needful to Ayefele.
Senator Dino Melaye, however, at the burial ceremony, announced that he is now a member of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, while demanding for RUGA Cattle settlement from President Muhammadu Buhari.
“My sincere appreciation goes to the good people of this country, including the chief of army staff, and several others that have identified with me and my family.
“During this period, I have received 104 cows and I can say I’m now a member of Miyetti Allah, and will thereby ask President Buhari to make available to me a Ruga cattle settlement.”
Dignitaries at the event were Bukola Saraki, former Senate President; Ike Ekeremadu, former Deputy Senate President; Dimeji Bankole, ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives and Patricia Etteh, also a former speaker of the house of reps.
