Presidential Election: Atiku Still Hopes For Justice

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party in the 2019 Presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, says he knows Senator Elisha Abbo, who assaulted a woman in a sex toy shop, but the law must take its cause.

Africa News24 reports that the Atiku made this known in a statement via twitter a micro-blogging site on Wednesday, July 3.

It was learned that the assault occurred on May 11 a month before Abbo was sworn in on June 11 as a senator of the 9th Nigerian Senate on the platform of the PDP, Nigeria’s main opposition party.

Reacting to the incident, Atiku advised his party to take disciplinary action against Senator Abbo, and also called the Adamawa North lawmaker to apologize publicly and submit himself to the police.

“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= Atiku tweeted.
