Senator Elisha Abbo, representing Adamawa North Senatorial District has been caught on camera viciously attacking a woman in an adult toy shop in Abuja after she told him to ‘take it easy’.
The lady had said this to prevent the Senator from lashing out at the store owner whom he had accused of insulting him reports Premium Times.
The assault had happened on the 11th of May in the presence of a mobile police officer who attempt to arrest the victim after the incident.
The assault was reported on May 14 at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on Nile Street, but the police told the victim to go look for Mr Abbo’s telephone number or they would not be able to do anything about it.
According to sources who pleaded anonymity, Mr Abbo who is a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had entered the shop at about 6:00 p.m. on May 11, a Saturday.
He had come in with three women, one of whom had become sick and vomited in the shop which prompted the owner to ask why she hadn’t done so outside.
The Senator has accused the shop owner of poisoning the store’s air conditioning. The shop owner had argued that everyone in the shop would have gotten sick if that was the case. This caused a back and forth between them.
Mr Abbo had later come with policemen and ordered them to take the shop owner away. At this point, she had called her father to inform him that she was about to be arrested.
When the senator requested she drop the phone, she did not comply and when another man had attempted to snatch the phone, the shop owner’s friend has said “Oga, please take it easy now,”
Mr Abbo switfly descended on the shopowner’s friend, saying she was “very stupid” and slapping her repeatedly, including directly in the eyes.
He said that he would have closed down the woman’s shop if she had not been his long time friend.
The assaulted woman, who is a nursing mother, was taken to a hospital, where she was treated for eye inflammation and other injuries she sustained during the attack.
Mr Abbo had not paid the bills. The victim and her lawyer have since reported to the police but they haven’t taken action as they claim not to have the Senator’s contact details.
The Senator was said to have returned to ask if the CCTV was functioning and threatened them of any videos of the incident leaked. He was told the CCTV wasn’t functional.
