Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District, Senator Buruji Kashamu has hinted that he would on Monday submit a counter petition against former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel who has accused him of sending assassins to kill him.
Daniel, in a petition to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris had alleged that Kashamu sent assassins to kill him in his Abuja home, but when they did not meet him, they mishandled some of his aides who were at home.
But Kashamu, who spoke to The Guardian through his Media Aide, Austin Onyokor also disclosed that the petition would call on the Inspector-General to dismiss the allegation in its entirety because it is fabricated and total falsehood.
Besides, Onyokor who spoke to the reporter on phone said, Kashamu is calling on the Police authorities to thoroughly investigate the two of them (Daniel and Kashamu) “to enable them find out which of them has a record of violence”.
Onyokor said, “We are submitting a Petition to the IGP and other Security agencies on Monday asking them to dismiss the allegation on its entirety.”
Accusing Daniel of playing “dirty politics”, he insisted “How can somebody just wake up and make such wild allegation against his political opponent just to dent his (Kashamu) image, such wicked behaviour smacks of desperation”.
He assured that Kashamu had resolved to explore all peaceful, legal and civilised means to clear his name.
