Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West in the National Assembly has claimed that his Abuja residence is currently being invaded by scores of police personnel.
Melaye is reporting the alleged invasion of his house in a thread of tweets via his official Twitter account, @dino_melaye:
Melaye had raised the alarm a few days ago against the inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris, claiming there was a plot to arrest him on Christmas day and kill him.
In a tweet on Tuesday, December 25, the Kogi lawmaker claimed the plan was to inject him to death.
Melaye said the state commissioner of Kogi had been removed in order to perfect the plot.
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.”

However, reacting to Melaye's allegation, the Nigeria Police Force, on Wednesday, December 26, denied plans to arrest and kill the senator.
A statement by police spokesman, DCP Jimoh Moshood said the statement attributed to Senator Melaye, captioned “IG plans to arrest me, inject me to death,” was false.
Moshood said: “The Force is categorically stating that the statement is mischievous, malicious, capable of misleading the public and laughable.”
He added that “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.”
