“Simply unable to shake-off the deep angst that this video of a primitively violent certain Senator Elisha Abbo evokes. How far have we fallen that such hooliganism & extreme abuse of status could happen before a Nigerian Police officer who obeyed the valiant & arrested the Victim?

“Know what worsened my angst? The fact that Abbo — an obvious ‘Onye Nkilika Mmadu’ felt entitled to adoration from those ladies. He went ballistics &criminally physically and verbally assaulted the two ladies while a desecrated @PoliceNG officer carried out his own bidding. Kai!” the former education minister said.

In the video, Abbo, 41, on May 11 assaulted a woman, said to be a nursing mother after she defended an attendant at a intimacy gadget shop who was about to be arrested on claims that she had insulted the lawmaker.
