Senator Elisha Abbo (PDP-Adamawa North) has revealed the reason he assaulted a lady at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
Recalls that Abbo, who is Nigeria’s youngest Senator, was caught on CCTV assaulting a nursing mother in an adult toy shop.
He, however, apologized to the woman and Nigerians, promising to be of good behaviour.
Speaking with The Punch on Saturday, Abbo lamented that Nigerians don’t want to hear his side of the story.
He noted that there were many misgivings in the narratives in possession of most traditional and online media.
Senator Elisha Abbo narrated that he was called by his wife’s younger sister that his only sister had been killed.
He said, “I asked what really happened to her and she (wife’s sister) responded that she (Senator’s sister) was hit, then I thought it was a car.
“On getting there with my brother, I found my sister lying in a pool of her own vomit and naked.
“So, I had to cover her first before calling the management of the Maitama Hospital to bring an ambulance.
“Asking what happened from a passerby, I confirmed that someone hit her but not with a car.
“Suddenly a boy came and hit me on the head saying ‘call Buhari if you can’.
“For what? I asked him because I was surprised and confused.
“Then, the lady beside the sex shop pushed me and slapped me, ordering me to get out of the way and shouted, ‘get out’.
“I realised she was the one who dragged my sister on the floor. That was where my anger set in.”
“Instead of showing sympathy and concern for the dying girl, the owner of the shop pulled her like a ragout of her shop, telling her not to die there.”
Abbo stated that he got angry and decided to call the Nigeria police.
He said, “I wasn’t going about with security personnel as of that time because I was not yet a Senator.”
