The senator representing Kogi west senatorial district also debunked rumors stating that he threatened to beat up Remi Tinubu, wife of former Lagos state governor.

He told our correspondent that it was all lies and none of the issues stated happened at the closed door session. “It is now obvious that Sahara Reporters lies,blackmail and propaganda is now limited edition and shameless,” he said.

When our correspondent asked that he explained what happened at the closed door session, he simply said “nothing like reported”.

Sahara Reporters, an online medium, had earlier reported that the senators in a closed door meeting before plenary commenced at the Senate, had threatened to impeach President Buhari over the Senate forgery allegations scandal.

According to reports, Melaye threatened to ‘impregnate’ and beat up Remi Tinubu, representing Lagos central senatorial district.

Their anger arose from the proposed trial of the Senate leadership over forgery, a case for which Senate president, Bukola Saraki; his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu, and other officers were recently charged to court.

However, some senators were said to have called on their colleagues, led by Senators Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi representing Kaduna North senatorial district and Kabir Marafa representing Zamfara Central senatorial district to withdraw the petition that had led to the prosecution of Senate leadership.

Melaye was said to have called on his colleagues to fight the presidency and also reportedly issued threats during the rowdy session.

When Senator Tinubu was asked to speak, she said said the Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where senators could just issue childish threats. Reports say after she had appealed to senators to close ranks and seek reconciliation, Melaye got really mad and started calling the former governor’s wife names.

“I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen.” he threatened. This statement was reported to have triggered more commotion on the floor of the Senate as some senators rallied around her to protect her.
