The Senator representing Kogi west, Dino Melaye, says he is not afraid of going to prison.
Melaye said this on Tuesday on the floor of the senate while drawing the attention of the upper legislative chamber to the charges filed against him by the federal government.
The government had accused Melaye of framing Edward David, chief of staff to Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, over the alleged assassination attempt on his life.
The senator argued that those who attempted to kill him in April were paraded by the police.
He wondered why the federal government would quote the police as saying he gave false information in the naming of the suspects.
Vowing not to be intimidated, Melaye said he would continue to criticise any public office holder.
