Yakubu Dogara, Speaker of the House of Representatives, wrote a letter to Mohammed Adamu, Inspector General of Police and other security agencies over plan by Bauchi State government to implicate him in criminal conspiracy.
The Nigerian lawmaker in the letter dated Thursday 21st March, 2019, said he received credible information of an ongoing plot to plant false evidence in form of branded motorbikes and cars bearing the logo of his party (PDP) and his pictures, which will be used to commit crimes and implicate him in criminal activities.
The letter reads: “I write to inform the Inspector General of Police that I am in receipt of credible intelligence about an ongoing plot by Bauchi State government to implicate me in a criminal conspiracy.
“The Bauchi State government has procured hundreds of motorbikes and cars which are being branded in the Government House Bauchi with my pictures and logo of my party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and my name inscribed.
“The plan is that the Bauchi State government will engage some criminal elements and give them the branded motorbikes and cars which they will use to commit crime and thereafter abandon them at the scene so as to implicate me.
“I am, by this letter, putting the Police and other security agencies on notice so as to be on the watch out for these criminal elements intended to be deployed by Bauchi State Government.
“Attached is the picture of the branded stickers.”
