The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker while addressing the press conference said he regretted his actions and apologized to his victim and her family as well as all Nigerians.
This is coming after presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar asked him to tender a public apology to the woman and to Nigerians in general.
Commenting on the issue in his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Mr Abubakar, who is from Adamawa State, condemned the action of the lawmaker and admonished him to issue a public apology.
“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,” he said.
