Elisha Abbo is a primitively violent man — Ezekwesili

Oby Ezekwesili

Former presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has knocked Senator Elisha Abbo and his orderly for assaulting a woman in an Abuja sex shop.

Premium Times posted video of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker from Adamawa State hitting the lady online on Tuesday.

Mrs Ezekwesili tweeted on Wednesday that she had not been able to shake off the angst that the assault video evokes.

She said she was more angered by the fact that Mr Abbo felt ‘entitled to adoration from those ladies’.

“Simply unable to shake-off the deep angst that this video of a primitively violent certain Senator Elisha Abbo evokes. How far have we fallen that such hooliganism & extreme abuse of status could happen before a Nigerian Police officer who obeyed the valiant & arrested the Victim?

“Know what worsened my angst?  The fact that Abbo — an obvious  ‘Onye Nkilika Mmadu’ felt entitled to adoration from those ladies. He went ballistics &criminally physically and verbally assaulted the two ladies while a desecrated @PoliceNG officer carried out his own bidding. Kai!” the former education minister said.

In the video,  Abbo, 41, on May 11 assaulted a woman, said to be a nursing mother after she defended an attendant at a sex toy shop who was about to be arrested on claims that she had insulted the lawmaker.

The senator was said to have returned to the store to warn against releasing the footage of the incident.

Since the case was reported on May 14 at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on Nile Street, the police have been reportedly negligent on the matter.
