Senator Buruji Kashamu has denied ever hiring assassins to go after a former Ogun state governor, Gbenga Daniel.
The senator representing Ogun east senatorial district made the denial in a letter to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Idris Ibrahim, in which he also denied having any killer squad.
Though, Kashamu admitted that he and Daniel have had political differences since 2009, he however, stated that he was not interested in taking the life of the former governor.
The senator said he has been in Lagos since the National Assembly went on recess.
“My telephones and call logs are available for scrutiny. It is true that we have had political differences since 2009 after working together for some time. Even at that, not once have I been linked to any form of violence’’.
“As for me, I have no interest in Daniel’s death or that of any human being. If I engaged him as a sitting governor with tact and intelligence, why would I want to attack or assassinate him now?” he said in the letter,” he said.
Kashamu accused Daniel of trying to revive his political career with the story of an assassination plot.
The former governor had urged the police authorities to put the senator under security watch list and strict surveillance.
Daniel in a petition to the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris alleged that five armed men stormed his Abuja residence on Thursday August 24, 2017 at about 9:13pm asking for him but he had already left Abuja earlier in the day.
