Sexual assaults, Physical assaults is now an object of concern in our society becoming one of the most horrendous crimes.
Video of a senator representing Adamawa North district, Elisha Ishaku Abbo, was caught on camera, physically assaulting a pregnant woman at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
According to a closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage obtained by Premium Times, Abbo assaulted the woman after she supported the shop owner whom the lawmaker had accused of insulting him.
The incident reportedly happened on May 11, 2019 exactly one month before the 41-year-old lawmaker was sworn into the 9th Senate.
When contacted, Abbo admitted he committed the crime.
“I saw your message and I am aware of the report. I am putting my team together. I am aware that the thing happened around March this year but I will get in touch with you when we finish discussion. I am in a meeting now,” the lawmaker told Punch.
The assaulted woman was taken to a hospital the next day and was treated for eye inflammation and other injuries she sustained during the attack.
The assault was reported at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on May 14, 2019, with the victim demanding an apology from the lawmaker. She also demanded he should foot her medical bill and desist from further threats of physical harm against her.
However, he has received several bashing on social media as regards the barbaric act.
IGP has since then ordered for his arrest and he is to be prosecuted by the senate.
The PDP could start off by suspending Senator Elisha Abbo representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, to demonstrate that they don’t condone assult and battery. The Senate can sanction him too.
