Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye is renowned for his ostentatious living.
The former senator threatened to take legal action after a car dealer accused him of N14.5 million debt for a Mercedes Benz he acquired in 2018.
The drama started on Thursday after the politician took to his Instagram platform to flaunt his recently acquired, Rolls Royce Cullinan.
“If you yab me l go ride am, if you no yab me l go ride am….kuku yab me make I continue dey ride am jare.. .Omo Melaye saying Let them say,” he had written in Pidgin alongside a photo of the car.
Shortly after the post, the car company, Unique Motors took to the comment section to call out the former lawmaker and alleged that he refused to pay the balance for the 2018 vehicle he acquired.
“Sir, you still have outstanding balance to pay unique motors. All effort to reach you and Moses prove abortive. Please pay up sir,” the company had written.
In a follow-up post, however, Melaye fired back at the company, accusing it of using his name to promote its business.
“No be only unique motor!
If l am really owing you, you know what to do.
Abi na social media you sell the imaginary car?
All of una wey dey use my name promote your obscure business…
God know una address ooo. But for this unique nonsense my lawyers go reach you. You dial trouble,” he wrote.
In the post accompanied with a picture of Melaye posing alongside the Mercedes Benz, the company said efforts to collect the remaining balance have so far proved abortive.
