He said: “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.”

The Senate, on its part, presided over by its president, Bukola Saraki, has resolved to set up an ad-hoc committee to carry out a thorough investigation into Melaye's claims.
Reacting to the allegations, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Atai Aidoko Ali Usman, representing Kogi east constituency, said that the said withdrawal is unacceptable since it was done without the Senate's backing.
