Wife of national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Senator representing Lagos Central, Senator Oluremi Tinubu has called on the Inspector General of Police to provide her with security against her colleague, Sen. Dino Melaye (APC, Kogi West), who has tendency to kill her.

Tinubu, in a letter obtained by News Express, dated July 18, admitted that her call for police protection became necessary because "Senator Melaye has murderous tendencies and an antecedence of public brawling that led to a person’s death in the past.

The letter which was titled ‘Request for Police Protection,’ reads: “I am Senator Oluremi Tinubu, representing the 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 winds, resorted to vulgar abuse of my person and wanted to assault me.

“It was the timely intervention of a number of 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 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.”

Recall that Senators Tinubu and Melaye have been engaged in a series of claims and counter-claims bordering on threats, abusive and vulgar language and altercations over the leadership of the Senate led by Bukola Saraki.
