Politicians and people in position of power have abused that power for many years in Nigeria and the case involving Senator Elisha Abbo, representing Adamawa North Senatorial District is no different. 

The senator has been caught on camera physically assaulting a woman at an adult toy shop in Abuja after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom he had accused of insulting him. He said the shop owner called him a drunk. The attack happened as an armed mobile police officer looked on, and made attempt to arrest the victim instead of the perpetrator.

This incident occurred on May 11 — nearly three months after Mr Abbo became a senator-elect and a month before he was sworn-in on June 11. The assault was reported on May 14 at the Maitama Area Command Headquarters on Nile Street, but the police told the victim to go look for Mr Abbo’s telephone number or they would not be able to do anything about it and since then, the police have continued to stall. 

The victim and the shop owners are scared for their lives and from what we the public have seen, we don't want to believe that It's true that the police is forsaking them and protecting the powerful. 

On behalf of Nigerians who want these abuse of power to end in the country, we ask that a criminal investigation is conducted and justice is served.
