On Tuesday, online news medium Sahara Reporters said that Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye threatened to beat up Senator Oluremi Tinubu (APC-Lagos Central) during a closed-door meeting of the Red Chamber.

Tinubu, the wife of former Lagos state governor and All Progressive Congress (APC) National Leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is the Senate Committee Chairman on Women Affairs.

Sahara Reporters wrote:

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, and called on Senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation among 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.

Few hours after the publication, Melaye who was recently honoured with a Chieftaincy title in Ijesha land, Osun state, responded in a tweet. He said:

Dino Melaye

    Nigerians have themselves to blame for imbeciles like Dino & his cohorts occupying political offices! In any sane society, his likes would not even be sniffing any sort of political position but because we as Nigerians sit back and pray to God and blame the devil/ enemies this is what we get! Senator my you know what!!

      People like dino melaye belong to the stone age, he cannot accept the civility of modern life, his brutish instinct is still very much intact. Please do not blame him, the jungle within him just cannot be removed by surgery.

    Remi Tinubu should please respond, let’s know who the liar is between Sahara reporters and wife beater Dino. Dino has been known to be a taekwando leader in wife beating. So all denouncement to the report at this point is very questionable. For the benefit of doubt, I await Remi Tinubu’s response.

      As in….My main grievance with Nigerians is that they had a chance to do do in the last elections. They could have rejected both PDP and APC but they just sold their souls. Toke and co, well done. You guys did not see KOWA. I mean we deserve what we get sometimes. So called celebrities with supposed education and exposure, could not rally behind the KOWA woman. It is well

    That was a careless statement. I hope most of these politicians understand there occupy an exalted position which a lot of people can only dream off? I don’t think most of them understand they were elected to serve and lead by example. They know nothing about anything.

    Most deme meaning statement in the honorable distinguished chamber. He must be reprimanded for that statement if he really did. He should be suspended from that house. It is unbecoming of the senate member. It is disgraceful for one of you voted to make laws quoted to say I will beat you, is that not a kindergarten stuff Dino that you are? Shame on senate if Dino is left un punished!

    Primium times was even more explicit in their report of the said events and I was shocked, truly a zebra cannot change its strips. It brings my mind to this saying “A foolish man may be known by six things: Anger without cause, speech without profit, change without progress, inquiry without object, putting trust in a stranger, and mistaking foes for friends and friends for foes.”
