The Nigeria Police Force once again says that Senator Dino Melaye and Senator Ben Murray-Bruce are to report to the Police Command in the FCT on October 8th and not to the IGP monitoring unit for investigation as earlier stated.
The force on October 5th had invited the duo to report to the IGP monitoring unit for investigation for public disturbance in Abuja. The duo who were members of the PDP that protested the outcome of the Osun governorship election at the force headquarters on Oct. 5, allegedly attacked policemen.
A statement by the Force spokesman, acting DCP Jimoh Moshood on Sunday in Abuja, said that the two Senators were captured on camera for their roles in the disturbance. Moshood alleged that the duo pushed and hit policemen to forcefully gain entrance into the Force Headquarters to cause damage to Police equipment and Government properties. He said that further investigation was ongoing to determine the level of involvement and culpability of other individuals during the protest.
