Senator Dino Melaye has accused Senator Remi Tinubu of paying N75 million to unknown persons to launch a protest against him.
The duo have been at loggerheads since Melaye threatened to beat up and impregnate Mrs Tinubu.
He made the allegation via a post on Facebook. He wrote:
A civil rights movement, Committee for the Defence of Women's Rights, has uncovered a plan by the wife of a former governor of Lagos State and chairman, Senate Committee on Women Affairs, Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu to sponsor a protest against Senator Dino Melaye this coming Wednesday in Abuja.
The organisation said she has released N75 million to Lagos State APC Woman Leader, Mrs. Kemi Nelson through one of her sisters simply identified as Funlola.
The National President of CDWR, Prof. Taibat Majekodunmi, made the revelation in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja. Already, the protesters have stormed Abuja and have booked for 300 rooms in many hotels in Abuja.
She said, “We have it on good authority that N75 million has been released by Senator Okuremi Tinubu to Mrs. Kemi Nelson through Mrs. Tinubu's sister called Funlola.
“The money is to organise a protest in Abuja on Wednesday against the chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Dino Melaye, with 1,000 protesters from Lagos. The protesters have booked for 300 rooms in some in hotels in Abuja. Why did she not organise a protest against the hardship of Nigerian women and widows.”
Meanwhile, Mrs Tinubu has urged the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to provide protection for her due to Melaye’s threats against her.
