Abbo was caught on a video recorded by the Close Circuit Television (CCTV) installed in a sex toy shop assaulting the lady.

Police sources told Vanguard that the force would do everything within their powers to treat the matter to a logical conclusion.

In a related development, a former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the incident, saying that it was sad and inexcusable.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the 2019 election said this on Wednesday in a statement obtained by Concise News.

Atiku, who is also from the embattled Senator’s Adamawa state, said the law was clear and that leaders must lead by example.

He advised the party to take disciplinary action against Senator Abbo, and also advised the Senator to apologise publicly and submit himself to the police.

It read: “I have seen the alleged assault video involving Sen. Elisha Abbo. The video is sad, inexcusable. I know the Senator quite well. But the law is clear and leaders must lead by example.

“‪‪I advise him to publicly apologize, voluntarily go to the police and show a good example expected of a young leader. I also call on our party, the PDP to take necessary disciplinary action and the Nigerian Police to ensure the law takes its full course.”
