Yesterday we reported how PremiumTimes released a CCTV (FULL VIDEO ON OUR IGTV) of Senator Elisha Abbo, who is Nigeria’s youngest senator, physically assaulting a nursing mother at an adult toy shop in Abuja.

The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, descended on the woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shopowner whom the senator had accused of insulting him.

In the video, he had accused the shopowner of calling him a drunk. According to PT, the assault was reported on May 14, 2019, at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on Nile Street, but the police have failed to act.

The senator had walked in with three young women to purchase adult toys, but shortly after they began shopping, one of the three girls started throwing up.

She vomited multiple times, prompting the shopowner to remark that the woman should have vomited outside and not inside her shop.

Mr Abbo, who was said to be agitated by the sudden illness of one of his girls, was said to have accused the shopowner of poisoning the store’s airconditioner.

The shopowner’s argument that if the airconditioner had been contaminated others in the shop would have also taken ill, further angered him, and the two began exchanging words over the matter.

The senator later told a police officer to arrest the shop owner, prompting her to quickly call her father to inform him about the situation.

Mr Abbo then asked the shopowner to stop the call because he was talking to her, a demand she refused to accede to. Next, the shopowner’s friend pleaded that they should take things easy.

But he swiftly started slapping her repeatedly. The victim and her lawyer later reported the matter to the police who have failed to take any action. However, his wife has said he is innocent. 📹: Premium Times
