Traditional ruler threatens to sue Melaye over his verbal attack on Oluremi Tinubu


A traditional ruler in Oyo state, the Atapa of Itapa Ijesa, Dr. Olapade Agoro, has threatened to file a lawsuit against Senator Dino Melaye over his verbal attack on Senator Remi Tinubu during the senate plenary early this month. Speaking to the Nation at his palace yesterday, Agoro who is a politician and religious leader said
“No wonder, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, without mincing words, told the whole world that the National Assembly is full of corrupt legislators. That was a weighty statement. When you say corruption, you are not limiting it to taking bribe. 

It could be immoral. By what he did on the floor of the Senate, I will say Melaye has committed immorality. For this young man to have lost morality and commonsense on the floor of the hallowed chamber, to have threatened to beat up a woman, that was too much. You don’t say you want to beat up another man’s wife on the hallowed chamber; forget who the husband is. That issue is beyond political scene. It raises the question of morality. When a man says he will beat up another man’s wife and even impregnate her, it means the man has admitted to be a rapist.
By now, the police should have stepped in. It’s a reckless and senseless vituperation that should be taken beyond the floor of the Senate. The young man has been so reckless ever since he became a senator. It shows how corrupt he is. I don’t know why that type of character should be allowed to continue staying in the Senate. The APC should have by now sanctioned him to protect the name of the party, not demanding an apology from him. I could have taken him court, if not for anything, because we don’t expect characters like him in the Senate. He should be made to face the music”‎.
