Dino Melaye, one of Nigeria’s most controversial senators has given a thuggish sound-off, following alleged threats he shouldn’t come into Lagos.
Melaye had a misunderstanding with a fellow senator Remi Tinubu, Tuesday, (July, 12), where he reportedly threatened to physically-assault her with no repercussion while adding that he had no fear for her husband, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Tinubu is one of the most powerful men in Nigerian politics and father of Lagos state.
Dino Melaye claimed he only responded to Mrs Tinubu because she had called him a “dog” and a “thug”.
His recent posting of a series of pictures on Facebook with certain words appear arrogant, jeering and a dare to the female senator whose husband practically owns Lagos.
The senator’s words apparently is for anyone and everyone who thinks they can instill fear in him to avoid his presence in Lagos.
He began, “Just landed Lagos. Waiting for those who said I should not enter Eko”
Another in front of the MMM airport read, “In Lasgidi. Eru o bodo” meaning “A river is never afraid of the swimmer.”
While walking on the pedestrian lane of Bourdillion Road, Melaye wrote, “Agba Akin kin so jo” meaning “The warrior entertains no fear”.
Dino Melaye sounded off another shot, “This is Dino walking freely on Bourdillion in Lagos. I walk down the street right now. Eyin da. meaning “Where are you?”.
Is this the proper way for a Nigerian senator to behave? He flew all the way from Abuja to Lagos just to dare the Tinubu family and their co-horts.
Is his job description as a senator not keeping him busy enough to have zero time for such act?
On the real, this senator needs a call-to-order.
