Remi Tinubu Assaults Woman, Calls Her ‘Thug’ During Constitution Review Hearing | Video

Wife to Former Lagos state governor, Senator Oluremi Tinubu has caused a stir as she called a woman a thug during an heated argument at the constitution review hearing.

The incident happened at the South-west zonal public hearing of the constitution review which held at Marriott Hotel in Lagos on Wednesday, May 26.

As noted by The Cable, the lawmaker was involved in a shouting match with some Nigerians who attended the event at the Marriot Hotel in Lagos.

Tinubu is leading the Senate Committee on Review of the 1999 Constitution in the South-West.

It was reported that residents queued to register before they were allowed into the venue of the event.

However, when the state Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, came in through the back door, the front door was shut and the registration closed.

Those who were yet to register were said to have stayed in the queue, protesting their exclusion from the event.

Some lawmakers from Oyo State, who passed the queue and were about to be ushered into the programme, were allegedly followed by some residents, causing commotion.

As the shouting match continued near the front door, with those on the queue insisting that they had been unfairly treated, the Oyo lawmakers were led to the back door to make their way in. However, some people followed them, preventing them from being allowed into the hall. After some consultation with the personnel at the door, Senator Tinubu showed up at the backdoor to allow the lawmakers in.

As Mrs Tinubu was about to do this, a woman, who complained about being denied entry, decried the partial treatment and voiced out her frustration. It is alleged that Senator Tinubu got insulted by the woman’s outburst and called her a thug. This led to a shouting match between the woman and Senator Tinubu.
