Abuja - Second Republic Senator, Ayo Fasanmi, has called for the suspension of Senator Dino Melaye from the senate over his alleged threat on the wife of the National leader of the APC, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, Daily Post reports.
Melaye had on Tuesday threatened to assault Tinubu, a Senator representing Lagos Central in the senate during a closed door session.
Melaye, however, claimed he was only responding to an insult from Tinubu who called him a dog and a thug when the impeachment move against President Muhammadu Buhari was been considered.
However, the elder statesman while condemning Melaye’s action said the lawmaker has dented the image of the hallowed chambers.
Fasanmi in a solidarity message during an emergency meeting of Lagos Central District leaders and stakeholders held at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos Mainland, urged Nigerians to examine the quality of lawmakers they select to represent them at the National Assembly.
At the meeting which was held with the aim of reaffirming their loyalty and support for Senator Tinubu, Fasanmi called on the National leadership of the APC to sanction Melaye.
