IGP Plots To Arrest And Inject Me To Death —Melaye

Says Kogi State Commissioner of Police removed over plot

The senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye has alleged that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotum Idris is planning to arrest him and inject him to death.

Senator Melaye made the allegation on his Twitter handle on December 25, 2018.

He further alleged that the Kogi State Commissioner of Police has been removed over plot and that operatives meant to carry out the IGP’s order had already been deployed.

In reaction to the allegation, however, the spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force, Jimoh Moshood has dismissed the claim.

He described Melaye’s statement as mischievous, laughable and capable of misleading the public.

He said there were no plans by the police to arrest the senator, but that if he had committed a crime, he should come out of hiding and confess.

“There’s no such order by the IGP.”

“And we want to use this medium to tell high-profile people like the senator that they have a responsibility not to make utterances that are capable of misleading the public,” Moshood said.

The police spokesman asked the people to disregard Melaye’s statement, adding: “There are no police personnel deployed to arrest him.

“Or does the senator knows something we don’t know? Has he committed a crime that he is afraid of?

“It’s a mischievous statement just to mislead the people and orchestrate disaffection towards the police.”

In another tweet, Senator Melaye lambasted the governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello over non-payment of salaries.

He wrote:

Senator Dino Melaye, who has been repeatedly arrested by police under the current leadership of IGP Idris, has been a thorn in the flesh of Governor Bello.
