The Nigerian Police force has reacted to Senator Dino Melaye’s outcry over an alleged plan by the Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idiris of conspiring to arrest and inject his death.
Reports has it that the Force has categorically denied the statement as untrue, ridiculous, mischievous, malicious, capable of misleading the public and laughable, as there was no such order from the Inspector General of Police or any plan by the Force to arrest or inject to death the senator representing Kogi west senatorial district.
However if the Senator had committed any crime or aware of his involvement in any crime, he should confess and face the legal consequences instead of whipping up sentiments to distract the public.
Members of the public are hereby enjoined to disregard and discountenance the statement by Dino Melaye in its entirety as untrue and mischievous.
According to the force, Melaye’s statement constitutes a criminal defamatory offence, hate speech and hateful conduct. However as a law maker, he should be law abiding and desist from un-senatorial and lawless utterances that cannot be substantiated with facts.
