I've been saying we need to pay attention to who we let into the National Assembly. Now look: a sitting senator caught on camera assaulting a woman. These are our "leaders".. our "lawmakers". Shame on us. Elisha Abbo should face the full wrath of the law:https://t.co/6XeHJ48mJF

Elisha Abbo must not escape for any reason, he must be taught that being in a position of power does not give him the temerity to exhibit his animalistic tendencies. #ArrestSenatorElishaAbbo #ElishaAbboMustFaceTheLaw

Police is your friend, police is your friend, but a policeman teamed up with an elected senator Elisha Abbo (who I must add, is stupid) to beat a lady and arrest her. Both of you are not fit to be called men.

Elisha Abbo must step down with immediate effect!!
He must be taught a lesson that will stop him from hitting women for the rest of his life.
