Sex toy assault: Senator Elisha Abbo is not above the law – Amnesty International
Amnesty international has joined ranks with the majority of voices calling for the arrest and prosecution of the Senator representing Adamawa North District in the National Assembly, Elisha Abbo, for assaulting a lady in an adult toy shop in Abuja.
Amnesty Nigeria posted below on Twitter:
Senator Elisha Abbo (Adamawa North) who took 3 ladies shopping in an adult shop, assaulted a nursing mother, in the presence of policemen.
This must be investigated. The lawmaker must face justice. The victims must be protected from his promise of more violence.
Senator Elisha Abbo is not above the law. Police must investigate allegations against him. Victims of his assault must get justice.
For too long, Nigeria’s women have been facing various kinds of gender-based violence that seldom receives proper attention from the law enforcement agencies. Alleged assault by Senator Elisha Abbo must be investigated.
All that Nigerians are demanding is that; Senator Elisha Abbo who assaulted a nursing mother, at a sex toys shop he took 3-women shopping must face JUSTICE. Violence against women must end in #Nigeria.
While shopping sex toys with the 3 girls in his company, Senator Elisha Abbo started assaulting the nursing mother only after the policemen he summoned arrived. He slapped the woman repeatedly with protection of the police.
This must be in investigated.
Senator Elisha Abbo’s assault of a nursing mother shows:
-In Nigeria, some people close to power behave with impunity.
-Gender-based violence is rampant and victims hardly get justice.
-Nigerian’s hardly have confidence of ‘investigations’ that never bring justice.

Senator Elisha Abbo.The Adamawa North Senator, said to be the youngest in the chamber, was observed in a 10-minutes video footage recklessly slapping a lady shop keeper. The offence of the lady appeared to be that she cautioned the Senator not to attack the shop owner who Abbo claimed insulted him.Senator Abbo claimed that the shop owner tagged him a drunk.
