But in a statement released by Police spokesman, DCP Jimooh Moshood, on Wednesday, the Police denied any such plan against Dino, adding that if Dino is aware of his involvement in any crime, he should report himself to the Police.
The statement read:
“The Force is categorically stating that the statement is mischievous, malicious, capable of misleading the public and laughable.
“There was no such order from the Inspector General of Police or any plan by the Force to arrest Senator Dino Melaye and inject him to death.
“But if the Senator knows he had committed any crime or he is aware of his involvement in any crime, he should come out and confess and face the legal consequences instead of whipping up sentiments to distract the public.
“The Force sees such defamatory, mischievous, malicious and reckless statement by Senator Dino Melaye as untrue, ridiculous, mischievous and unfortunate.
“Members of the public are hereby enjoined to disregard and discountenance the statement by Senator Dino Melaye in its entirety as untrue and mischievous.
“He should however, as a law maker, be law abiding and desist from un-senatorial and lawless utterances that cannot be substantiated with facts.
“The Inspector General of Police will not be distracted by statements from the likes of Senator Dino Melaye but will continue to ensure that the rule of law prevails in all matters.”
