The chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri, has charged the Senate to allow the law take its full course against Senator Elisha Abbo over his alleged assault against a lady at a store recently. The Adamawa state lawmaker was reportedly caught on camera assaulting a woman following a confrontation at an adult store.
Dabiri, a former senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on diaspora took to her twitter handle to express her displeasure over the incident. She pointed out that he was a lawmaker on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party who defeated Senator Binta Masi Garba and called on the Senate not to protect him.
When asked if she would voice out in the same manner if the senator was a member of the All Progressives Congress, Dabiri promised to express the same sentiment.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker reacted to the viral video showing where he assaulted a woman in an adult shop in Abuja. Speaking to Channels Television, Abbo claimed that the shop owner did not release the full video, stressing that the part showing where his younger sister was assaulted in the said shop. Was omitted. He said: “We will soon release an official statement to the very old video that happened before I became a Senator; where my younger sister was beaten to a pulp in the shop and I was called upon there, I had to call an ambulance and the Police to get to the scene and it got out of hand. It is an old video but we will soon release a statement to that effect.
