Abuja - Senator Oluremi Tinubu on Wednesday disclosed that as a christian she has resolved to forgive her counterpart from KogiWest, Dino Melaye for verbally assaulting her, Vanguard reports.
She made the disclosure when members of the Lagos State House of Assembly from Lagos Central and members of the All Progressives Congress caucus as well as some party leaders paid her a solidarity visit at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.
News24 earlier reported that Thanks to Senate President, Bukola Saraki's intervention, indications have shown that a possible reconciliation between Senator Dino Melaye and Senator Oluremi Tinubu is now underway.
Saraki reportedly met with Melaye and Tinubu separately to finally put an end to the ongoing spat between the two senators who both belong to the All Progressives Congress political party.
The Senate President is believed to have told both to end their war of words for the unity of the Senate and to protect their integrity as well as that of the Senate.
At the conclusion of both meetings, Tinubu and Melaye agreed to end their squabble that has been an ongoing controversy that has been played out publicly.
Tinubu alleged that Melaye threatened to rape her in a petition she sent to the leaderships of the APC and the Senate.
The petition followed an earlier letter to the acting Inspector of Police, Ibrahim Idris, in which she asked for “adequate security” for fear Melaye might kill her.
Senator Melaye previously berated the national leader of the APC, Bola Tinubu for threatening to deal with him, reacting to Tinubu's comments that he will deal with the Kogi senator for making defamatory remarks to his wife.
Melaye was accused by Oluremi Tinubu of threatening to beat her up and impregnate her after the two had a disagreement over the forgery scandal involving the Senate leadership.
