According to what he told Punch: “Hello Eniola, I saw your message and I am aware of the report. I am putting my team together. I am aware that the thing happened around March this year but I will get in touch with you when we finish discussion. I am in a meeting now.”
It was also gathered that the ugly incident of assault which has attracted criticisms from a large section of Nigerians happened at a sex toy shop in the Wuse 2 area of Abuja.
Abbo, who defeated the respected Senator Binta Garba, to emerge as the winner of the Adamawa North senatorial district, was seen assaulting the woman in a video .
The assault, which reportedly occurred on May 11, 2019, was done in the presence of an armed policeman who rather than assist the victim, arrested her.
Abbo, who is the youngest senator in the country, had entered the shop around 6pm on May 11, a Saturday.
An eyewitness gives account of the whole incident
“The senator walked in with three young women to purchase adult toys.
But shortly after they began shopping for the toys, one of the three girls brought in by Mr Abbo 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, especially since she was not a child.
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 air conditioner.
The shop owner’s argument that if the air conditioner had been contaminated others in the shop would have also taken ill was said to have angered Abbo, and the two began exchanging words over the matter.
The senator was said to have called a policeman who he then ordered to arrest the shop owner.The shop owner quickly called her father to inform him that Abbo had called the police over the matter and that she was about to be taken away.
The shop owner’s friend who had been standing nearby tried to intervene by pleading with the second man to take things easy but was slapped repeatedly by the lawmaker.”
