Senator Remi Tinubu writes Police IG; ...requests police protection from Dino Melaye

Senator Oluremi Tinubu
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.”
Various Senators who were present during the altercation confided in the press that Mr. Melaye said he would beat up and impregnate Senator Tinubu, wife of the National Leader of their common All Progressives Congress (APC) party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and that he would incur no repercussions.

Melaye subsequently denied the reports, but not the altercation, without stating exactly what he had said to Senator Tinubu during his outburst.

Recalling Senator Melaye's antecedents in the federal legislature, “particularly in the House of Representatives where a brawl led by him had led to the untimely death of a member,” Senator Tinubu said in the letter she decided not to ignore his threat to her life.
