Actress Stella Damasus has reacted to the way the outrage against senator Elisha Abbo who slapped a woman at a sex toy shop is dying down.
The outrage is not only dying down but Senator Elisha Abbo is walking free and few days ago got issued an Icon Award.
This is quite different from what was experienced when social media couldn’t allow the matter rest as almost every Nigeria condemned the senator and asked for him to be prosecuted.
Wondering where the rage went, Stella Damasus tweeted:
“Was I dreaming or was there a Nigerian senator who slapped a woman on video? If I was not dreaming, did we just stop talking about it? Has he really been left 2 walk free? Did I just see a video of him defending and justify himself? Okay I must be dreaming then. I need to wake up”
When a Twitter user reminded her that protesting against the senator might lead to the killing of protesters by government security operatives, Stella Damasus responded:
“We cannot and should not embrace it. There are other countries who have suffered worse and they stood up to their government. Today they are better off”.
