Dino Melaye Threatens To Beat Up Senator Tinubu

The Senate broke into an uproar today (Tuesday) with some members loyal to Bukola Saraki saying they will impeach President Muhammad Buhari, just as Dino Melaye threatening to ‘impregnate’ Remi Tinubu, the wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader. 

When the Senators who met behind closed doors earlier today, some of them were incensed by the trial of the leadership of the Senate for forgery. 

Shortly after plenary, some Senators called on their colleagues, led by Senators Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi (APC Kaduna North) and Kabir Marafa (APC Zamfara Central) to sheathe their sword and withdraw the petition that had led to the criminal prosecution of Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu. 

The Executive Session, which was chaired by Saraki, told reminded the Senate that a committee led former Senate President David Mark had been set up to “reconcile” members. 

Funny enough, Mark stood and said he was not informed that he chairs such a committee and that he didn’t know any members. He was simply told to do his “work”. 

Shortly after that, Senator Dino Melaye (APC Kogi West) said in his remarks that the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, must be brought before the Senate to be thoroughly grilled and humiliated for charging the Senate leadership with forgery in court. 

Dino Melaye called on the Senators in attendance to fight the presidency to a standstill. In his rant, he issued a wide variety of threats. 

When 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, and called on Senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation amongst its members. 

That was when Melaye flew into rage, calling her names. Dino threatened Tinubu's wife: “ I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen.” 

Dino's reckless statement caused commotion as Senators gathered to protect her. Saraki nodded as he called Mrs. Tinubu unprintable names according to Senators who intervened to stop the noise-making Dino. 

According to SR, a source revealed that there had been a series of meetings at the home of Senator Aliyu Wamakko (APC, Sokoto) to plot a total onslaught on President Buhari in the coming days. 

In addition, the Senators behind the forgery trial were threatened by the like-minded Senators, with the same Dino threatening to kill anyone who shows up in court to testify against Saraki and Ekweremadu. 
There is, however, a seeming crack in Saraki’s camp as some members have already pulled out or reduced their open support for him due to his many scandals.
