Senator Tinubu leveled this weighty allegation in a petition she wrote to the Acting Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris, on Monday, where she berated the leadership of the senate for its inaction in the alleged attack on her by Senator Melaye at an executive session.

The petition entitled ‘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 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.

“Please, accept the assurances of my highest regards and esteem.”
