Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu, a former Governor of Lagos State and a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has vowed to deal with Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West), if he dared beat his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu (APC-Lagos Central).
Melaye had on Tuesday reportedly vowed to beat Senator Oluremi Tinubu during a closed-door session of the Senate over the forgery case against Principal Officers of the Senate.
Tinubu had expressed disapproval of the tactics suggested by Dino Melaye, who was of the opinion that commencing impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari will make the Executive back down on the trial.
Reacting to the development, Asiwaju Tinubu vowed to deal with Dino Melaye if he took any untoward action against his wife.
Speaking through his spokesman, Sunday Dare, Tinubu said Melaye’s comments was a major low for him.
Dare, writing on his Twitter handle, said: “And if Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dare beats up another Senator, then he must be living in a fools paradise”.
“Things will happen. Dino Melaye sunk to the lowest ever today.
“From this point, it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Republic.”
Dino Malaye sunk to the lowest ever today. From this point it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Republic @gbollybakare
The Kogi West Senator Dino Melaye Had yester called for the impeachment of President Muhammadu Buhari over the ongoing trial of Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu for allegedly forging the Senate Standing order.
Melaye’s statement was said to have annoyed Senator Oluremi Tinubu, who allegedly noted that the suggestion of the Kogi West Senator was childish, warning the senators against taking “kindergarten” steps that could tear the Senate into pieces.
It was learnt that Melaye did not allow Tinubu to conclude her statement when he allegedly threatened to beat up the woman if she ever addressed him in that manner again.
“Do you think I am afraid of you or Bourdillon? I will f..k you up if you ever mess with me again,” Melaye allegedly said.
Melaye’s statement allegedly threw the closed session into a rowdy session before calm was eventually restored.
Attempts to get official confirmation of the development from the Senate spokesperson, Aliyu Abdullahi, failed as calls put across to his mobile did not connect while text messages sent to him were not responded to.
