Following news of Senator Dino Melaye’s threat to both beat up and impregnate the wife of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Senator took to social media and debunked the news as a falsity.
Mrs. Remi Tinubu has confirmed that Dino did actually rail abuses on her in the floor of the senate.
Melaye dismissed the news describing it as cheap ‘propaganda’, ‘lies’, and ‘junk journalism.’
Curiously, Dino did not respond to any of the statements credited to him.
The APC leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, AKA the Jagaban responded to Dino’s threat against his wife.
Speaking through his chief of staff, Sunday Dare, Tinubu stated that “Dino Malaye sunk to the lowest ever today.
“From this point it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Republic.
“And if Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dare beats up another Senator, then he must be living in a fool’s paradise. Things will happen,” Tinubu stated.
Recall that Dino Melaye swooped on Senator Remi Tinubu, after she admonished her colleagues against issuing puerile threats against the Attorney general of the federation.
Prior to her speech at the Senate plenary, Dino Melaye proposed that the senate drag the AGF, Abubakar Malami, before her.
His aim was so that the Senate could thoroughly grill him for humiliating the principal leaders of the Senate leadership with forgery in court.
“Mr. Melaye called on the Senators in attendance to fight the presidency to a standstill. In his rant, he issued a wide variety of threats.
“Recognized to speak, Senator Remi Tinubu (APC) Lagos Central said the Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where Senators could just issue childish threats.
“She called on Senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation amongst its members.
“That was when Melaye flew into rage, calling her names.
“I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen,” he threatened.
The statement caused a commotion on the floor as Senators in her support gathered to protect her.
