Protect Me from Melaye, Mrs Tinubu Pleads with IGP

Senator Oluremi Tinubu has asked the Inspector General of Police to protect her from Dino Melaye, who threatened Tuesday, last week to beat and impregnate her.
She recalled that the Senator, who represents Kogi West in the Upper Chamber has an history of violence, therefore she needed the protection of the police
The petition with reference number SOT/Vol.2/135, read: “I am Senator Oluremi Tinubu, representing Lagos-Central senatorial district of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“During the proceedings of the Senate on Tuesday July 14, 2016, I had cause to contribute to a matter of national importance. Apparently dissatisfied with my contributions, Senator Dino Melaye threw caution to the wind, resorted to vulgar abuse of my person and wanted to assault me.
“It was the timely intervention of a number of my colleagues which prevented Senator Melaye from unleashing 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 this threat to my life. Therefore, I am compelled to urge you to use your good office to provide me with adequate security.”
