In an exclusive interview with BEN TV in London on Monday, the lawmaker said he recently received threats from some of the lawmakers he had accused.

Jibrin was suspended by the House after he accused Speaker Yakubu Dogara, some other Principal Officers and a few other members of corruption, abuse of office and monumental fraud in connection with the 2016 budget.

Jibrin was ordered to abstain from the lower legislative chamber for 180 legislative days for breach of privileges of members.
