Senator Elisha Abbo, representing Adamawa North District, has finally owned up to the fact that he was man in a video that has gone viral, physically assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop in Abuja but insisted that the video was not complete.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker, who is the youngest Senator in the ninth National Assembly, was seen in a 10-minute video footage repeatedly slapping a woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom the senator had accused of calling him a drunk.
The assault reportedly happened on May 11, 2019, nearly three months after he became Senator-elect.
Abbo, however, insists he was not a Senator at the time of the incident and suggested that the footage was not complete as some part of it was not made available.
In his words “There is a video of me on social media. Let me state very clearly that when it happened, I was not a senator. It happened a long time ago.

“There is an aspect of that video that they took off. They didn’t show where my sister who accompanied me there collapsed and had to be rushed out in an ambulance. But we will provide our own response soon,”
