Criticisms have continued to trail a video released by Premium times showing a sitting Senator assaulting a nursing mother in an adult toy shop, one month before he was inaugurated.
The senators aide has since taken to factorial to appologise on his behalf saying that the Senator is human and can be provoked.
A serving lawmaker, Senator Elisha from Adamawa state , was caught on video slapping a nursing mother repeatedly at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
Abbo, defeated the respected Senator Binta Garba, to emerge as the winner of the Adamawa North senatorial district.
The assault, reportedly occurred on May 11, 2019, and was done in the presence of an armed policeman who rather than assist the victim, arrested her.
Abbo, 41, had entered the shop around 6pm on May 11, a Saturday, in the company of three young women to purchase adult toys.
After they began shopping , one of the three girls brought in by Mr Abbo started throwing up. She vomited several times, which caused the shop maker to ask why she didn’t step out of the shop to continue throwing up.
Abbo, reportedly agitated by the sudden illness of one of his girls, accused the shop owner of poisoning the store’s air conditioner.
The shop owner’s argument that if the air conditioner had been contaminated others in the shop would have also taken ill was said to have angered Abbo, and the two began exchanging words over the matter.
The senator was said to have called a policeman who he then ordered to arrest the shop owner.
The shop owner quickly called her father to inform him that Abbo had called the police over the matter and that she was about to be taken away.
When the shop owner’s friend who had been standing nearby tried to intervene by pleading with the second man to take things easy, she was slapped repeatedly by the lawmaker.
The incident was captured on CCTV footage. As at press time no official statement from the Senator was available.
