Atiku Calls On PDP to Take Disciplinary Actions Against Sen. Abbo

Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 2019 elections, Atiku Abubakar, has called on PDP to discipline Senator Elisha Abbo over assault of a woman at an adult toy shop.

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

The video has been greeted with public outcry since its release. Protesters have also stormed police headquarters in Abuja to demand Abbo’s arrest and prosecution.

Reacting to the video, Atiku said on social media on Wednesday: “I have seen the alleged assault video involving Sen. Elisha Abbo. The video is sad, inexcusable. I know the Senator quite well. But the law is clear and leaders must lead by example.”

He also called on the Adamawa North lawmaker to submit himself to the police to show ‘good example expected of a young leader’.

“I advise him to publicly apologize, voluntarily go to the police and show a good example expected of a young leader. I also call on our party, the PDP to take necessary disciplinary action and the Nigerian Police to ensure the law takes its full course,” Atiku said.
