Senator Oluremi Tinubu has written to the Acting Inspector General Of Police, Ibrahim Idris, requesting protection from fellow Senator Dino Melaye.
In the letter dated on the 18th of July 2016, Mrs Tinubu revealed how Melaye “resorted to vulgar abuse of my person and wanted to assault me.”
She added, “It was the timely intervention of a number of colleagues which prevented Senator Melaye from unleashing a physical attack on me. However, as the leadership of the Senate did not call him to order in the circumstance, he proceeded to threaten my life without any provocation whatsoever.”
“In view of Senator Melaye’s antecedent particularly in the House of Representatives where a brawl led by him had led to the untimely death of a member, I have decided not to ignore his threat to my life. Therefore I am compelled to urge you to use your good offices to provide me with adequate security.”
