Emily Eric, wife of Nigeria’s youngest senator, Elisha Abbo, who was caught on camera assaulting a woman at a sex toy shop in Abuja, has supported her husband, declaring he is innocent of all ‘allegations’.
In a post she shared of social media, she wrote;
“I stand with you babana & we will always stand for truth. My husband is innocent of what people against him.”
Emily Eric, Senator Elisha Abbo ‘s wife made this statement after he husband who is Nigeria’s youngest senator, was accused of physically assaulting a nursing mother at an adult toy shop in Abuja. Yesterday, we reported on the CCTV footage released.
The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, physically assaulted a woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom the senator had claimed insulted him. .
In the video, Senator Elisha Abbo had accused the shopowner of calling him a drunk. According to PT, the assault was reported on May 14, 2019, at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on Nile Street, but the police have failed to act.
The senator had walked in with three young women to purchase adult toys, but shortly after they began shopping, one of the three girls started throwing up. .
She vomited multiple times, prompting the shop owner to remark that the woman should have vomited outside and not inside her shop.
Mr Abbo, who was said to be agitated by the sudden illness of one of his girls, was said to have accused the shop owner of poisoning the store’s airconditioner.
The shop owner’s argument that if the airconditioner had been contaminated others in the shop would have also taken ill, further angered him, and the two began exchanging words over the matter.
The senator later told a police officer to arrest the shop owner, prompting her to quickly call her father to inform him about the situation. .
Mr Abbo then asked the shop owner to stop the call because he was talking to her, a demand she refused to accede to. Next, the shop owner’s friend pleaded that they should take things easy.
But he swiftly started slapping her repeatedly. The victim and her lawyer later reported the matter to the police who have failed to take any action. However, his wife has said he is innocent.
