Ex-Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has advised embattled Senator representing Adamawa Central, Elisha Abbo to submit himself to the police for questioning 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.

Atiku, presumed to be Abbo’s political godfather disclosed that he has advised the young politician to render a public apology and surrender himself to the police so the law could take its course.

He also called on his party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to take necessary disciplinary actions against the lawmaker whose election to the Senate was sponsored on its platform.

The statement which was released via a tweet from the verified handle of the Turaki of Adamawa reads,

“I’ve 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. 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 @OfficialPDPNig to take necessary disciplinary action and the @PoliceNG to ensure the law takes its full course. -AA.”
