Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Reacts To Elisha Abbo’s Assault On A Woman 

Funsho Akinwale

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has vowed to take action against Senator Elisha Abbo for assaulting a woman in Abuja.

The senator in question is a PDP member representing Adamawa North Senatorial District.

The senator was said to have slapped a woman at an adult toy shop somewhere in Abuja earlier in May.

The Senate President, Senator Ahmed Lawan, has formed a committee to investigate the issue which has become a major discourse in town.

Some members of the senate including Senator Abdullahi Yahaya; Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe; and Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, have all condemned the action of the senator.

The Senate President, while speaking on the issue, noted that it would be unfair to pass judgement quickly on either Senator Elisha or the lady without proper investigation.

“Since the video went viral, I have received messages from concerned Nigerians across the country and outside the country asking me to investigate the case before passing any judgement,” he said.

He added that he has directed the committee to probe the issue critically and submit the report within two weeks.
