Senator Elisha Abbo, representing Adamawa North district, has apologised after being caught on camera assaulting a woman.
A video released by Premium Times on Tuesday showed the senator physically assaulting a woman at a sex toy shop, after she told him, “Take it easy.”
After his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), released a statement condemning his actions, and the Senate began an investigation into the assault, the senator this evening held a press conference apologising.
He’s not known for being violent, he said in the press conference. He asked that Nigerians forgive him.
