The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of Elisha Abbo, the Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, for assaulting a woman at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
This is coming following calls by Nigerians to arrest, prosecute and jail Senator Elisha Abbo, who caught on camera slapping a woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shopowner whom the senator had accused of insulting him.
The IG of police has on Wednesday disclosed that Investigations are currently ongoing at the Federal Capital Territory police command into the alleged attack the woman at sex toy shop by a serving senator representing Adamawa.
The police force said they are doing everything within their powers to restore dignity to the force, following the conduct of the police orderly attached to the senator.
Meanwhile, Senator Abbo has reacted to the assault video saying he was not a lawmaker at the time of the incident and suggested that the footage was doctored because he was there to defend his younger sister who was beaten to a pulp in the shop.
