Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West, on Monday reacted to the directives of the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris for the withdrawal of police from Very Important Persons, VIPs.
Malaye alleged that the police boss was exposing him to be killed, having survived assassination twice.
In a tweet, the lawmaker insisted that he deserved police protection because he was a taxpayer.
According to Melaye, “Withdrawal of police from VIP I am the target. IG want to expose me so I can be killed.
“Having survived Assassination attempt twice I deserve police protection in a country where I’m a tax payer.
“No amount of lies and blackmail will detract my attention from speaking the truth and defending it.
“Fabricated lies by Kogi State Govt and the police will fail. It’s utterly laughable and preposterous. It’s a sign of desperation.”
