“Don’t threaten me with suspension”: Elisha Abbo tells Remi Tinubu during Assault Investigation | WATCH



Senator Elisha Abbo, who was caught on camera slapping a woman at an adult toy shop got into a heated argument with Senator Remi Tinubu, a member of the ad hoc committee set up to investigate the assault.

Tinubu had told Abbo that he cannot dictate the procedures the committee is supposed to adopt, saying: “Do you want us to protect you, or do you want us to defend you, or you want to be on your own?”

“Off that mic and let me finish,” Tinubu said, adding: “Do you realise that the Senate when we constitute this, whatever the law gives, we can also suspend you.”

Abbo cuts in, saying: “I will not seat and let you threaten me with suspension…. I am a senator like you…. You are a senator like me you cannot threaten me with suspension.”

Tinubu continued: “Off that mic, you’re digging a hole for yourself. I’m also another woman”

Abbo was arraigned at an FCT Magistrate Court on Monday and he pleaded not guilty to the one count charge of assault. He was then granted N5m bail.

    This guy needs to be stoned! They want to burn person, he’s rubbing himself in oil! After listening to his fake and insincere apology, I said it, that this dude lacks serious comprehension of the gravity of his actions! He’s still forming and flexing ?? in front of committee…probably because he knows his godfathers got his back.

      The man supposed to be in detention not bail, that is why he is still saying rubbish.

    When you get away with murder by knowingly infecting an innocent girl with HIV and nothing happened to you why will you be scared for a common assault. It doesn’t take much to topple a giant. David did it with a slingshot. Remember that.

    From his body language, this stupid guy has anger problem and is not repentant. He’s someone that should be in jail and not left to roam the street. I bet if not for public scrutiny he would have dealt Senator Remi Tinubu some blows. Mark my words he’s going to reoffend again very soon. OLOSHI
