The lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district, Dino Melaye has accused Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of Police (IGP) of planning to arrest and inject him to death.
The lawmaker made the allegation in a Twitter post on Tuesday.
Melaye said officers of the Nigerian police have already been deployed for the assignment.
“There is a plan by the IG to arrest me today and inject me to death. Men deployed already. CP Kogi and others removed. Nigerians watch out,” he tweeted.
Earlier in the year, the senator accused accused Idris of withdrawing police officers from very important persons (VIPs) with the sole aim of exposing him so that he could be killed.
