National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has reacted to the comments credited to Senator Dino Melaye, in which he reportedly threatened to beat up Senator Remi Tinubu, saying the Kogi lawmaker would regret it if he dared to.

According to Sahara Reporters, Melaye, representing Kogi West constituency, had on Tuesday, July 12, harassed the APC leader's wife during a closed-door session of the Senate over the forgery case against the Senate President Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

Mrs Tinubu was said to have opposed the lawmaker when he suggested the Senate initiate impeachment process against President Muhammadu Buhari - Melaye hurled abuses on her in reply.

“I can f**k you,” he was quoted to have said.

Speaking through Sunday Dare, his spokesman, Bola Tinubu described Melaye's misconduct as a "disgrace to the Senate.”

“A‎nd if Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dare beats up another Senator, then he must be living in a fools paradise," Dare wrote on Twitter.

 

Melaye has, however, denied the reports that he caused an uproar in the Senate and that he moved to initiate impeachment process against Buhari.
