Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has taken her misunderstanding with Senator, Dino Melaye to the next level. Today, she not only allowed people to protest against Melaye, but also requested police protection from the Acting Inspector-General of Police.
"It was the timely intervention of a number of colleagues which prevented Senator Melaye from unleashing a physical attack on me,” she said in a letter to the police boss.
"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."
Various Senators who were present during the altercation said 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.
