The Nigeria Police Force, on Wednesday, December 26, turn down arrangement to capture & assasinate Senator Dino Melaye.
As per Daily Trust, an announcement by police representative, DCP Jimoh Moshood said the announcement ascribed to Senator Dino Melaye, inscribed “IG plans to arrest me, inject me to death,” is untrue.
Moshood stated: “The Force is categorically stating that the statement is mischievous, malicious, capable of misleading the public and laughable.”
He included that “there was no such order from the Inspector General of Police or any plan by the Force to arrest Senator Dino Melaye and inject him to death.”
Nonetheless, the police stated: “But if the Senator knows he had committed any crime or he is aware of his involvement in any crime, he should come out and confess and face the legal consequences instead of whipping up sentiments to distract the public.”
“The Force sees such defamatory, mischievous, malicious and reckless statement by Senator Dino Melaye as untrue, ridiculous, mischievous and unfortunate.”
Moshood included: “Members of the public are hereby enjoined to disregard and discountenance the statement by Senator Dino Melaye in its entirety as untrue and mischievous.”
He additionally said Melaye should realize that his announcement establishes a illegal slanderous crime, hatred talk & nasty behavior.
“He should, however, as a lawmaker, be law-abiding and desist from un-senatorial and lawless utterances that cannot be substantiated with facts.”
“The Inspector General of Police will not be distracted by statements from the likes of Senator Dino Melaye but will continue to ensure that the rule of law prevails in all matters,” the police expressed.
Senator Melaye had before raised caution against the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris, alleging there was a plan to capture him on Christmas day & assasinate him.
In a tweet made yesterday, December 25, the Kogi administrator asserted the arrangement was to infuse him to death.
Melaye included that the state commissioner of Kogi had been taken out so as to achieve the plan.
He stated: “There is a plan by the IG to arrest me today and inject me to death. Men deployed already. CP kogi and others removed. Nigerians watch out.”
