Sex Toy Assault: Embattled Senator Abbo shuns plenary
The embattled Peoples Democratic Party member representing Adamawa North in the National Assembly, Elisha Abbo, stayed away from the Senate plenary on Wednesday.
Abbo, who allegedly slapped a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in the Wuse area of Abuja recently, was very active at the nation’s parliament on Tuesday as he freely interacted with his colleagues.
He also contributed to a motion moved by Senator Yahaya Oloriegbe on the activities of drug cartels at the nation’s airports.
But the Senator, who moved the motion for the nomination of Senator Ali Ndume for the position of the Senate President during the inauguration of the 9th National Assembly on June 11, was conspicuously absent at the red chamber today.
There are strong indications that the leadership of the federal parliament has not forgiven the 41-year-old senator for nominating Ndume for the Senate President position against Ahmad Lawan, who was the party’s choice for the position.
The Senate on Wednesday set up a committee to probe the alleged assault of a lady by Senator Elias Abbo in May.
Following the outrage generated by the video showing the senator assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop in Abuja, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has also ordered the arrest of the senator’s orderly by an investigative team set up by the Police Force headquarters in Abuja.
Investigations are currently ongoing at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command into the alleged attack on a sales girl by a serving senator in Abuja.
The Senator was seen on video assaulting the lady in a toy sex shop somewhere in Abuja on May 11, 2019 for allegedly abusing him.
