Yesterday And Now – The Truth About The Elisha Abbo Slap

An incident that reportedly happened on May 11, 2019, exactly one month before the 41-year-old lawmaker was sworn into the 9th Senate has been getting everyone talking.

In the video, the senator was seen physically abusing a lady in a sex gadget store in Abuja.

Let’s see what Nigerians have to say about this:

While there were visual evidence that the assault happened, the senator had claimed that some part of the video was doctored.

Now, Let’s look at the whole story

Abbo had reportedly arrived at the shop around 6 pm on May 11 with three young women to buy sex toys. However, one woman started throwing up, leading to the shop owner displaying irritation at the mess created.

In the footage, Abbo was seen waiting inside the shop making calls and was joined by a police officer whom he asked to arrest the shop owner he described as a friend.

“She insulted me. She said I’m drunk, stupid and mad” he told the officer.

An attempt by a friend of the shop owner to intervene angered the lawmaker more, leading to him approaching her and pushing her in the head. He then proceeded to slap her three times.

Abbo kept calling her stupid for her intervention and commanded the officers to arrest both women.

What The Senator Had To Say

in his response to the video, Senator Abbo told Channels Television the narrative has been twisted to achieve an agenda against him.

“We’ll soon release an official statement to the very old video that happened before I became a senator where my younger sister was beaten to a pulp in a shop and I was called upon there. I had to call an ambulance and the Police to come to the scene and it got out of hand while I was also beaten...assaulted really. It’s an old video but we’ll soon release a statement. It’s an old video that happened long before I became a senator but that doesn’t mean that it’s not something that I’m happy about. They cut off so many things there and are trying to exhume it now. Well, this is a political season and I’m now a politician. And politicians are not people who are liked,”
