A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has called for the arrest of the lawmaker representing Adamawa-North senatorial district, Senator Elisha Abbo, for assaulting a lady in an adult toy shop in Abuja.
Premium Times had published the video of the lawmaker hitting assaulting the woman at a Sex toy shop in the Wuse area of Abuja.
Although the video surfaced online on Tuesday, the incident was reported to have occurred on May 11, a month before Abbo, the youngest Nigerian senator, was sworn in.
The video has since stirred controversy online as Nigerians and prominent individuals are calling for his arrest.
Reacting, Omokri called on the PDP to immediately repudiate the Senator, following the evidence against him.
Omokri added that the Senator should be prosecuted and jailed for his action.
In a series of tweets, the former presidential aide said the action of the Senator was an indication that he is unfit to be a lawmaker.
“Not only should Senator Abbo be arrested, prosecuted & jailed, but the policeman that was with him should be disciplined. Additionally, the lady he assaulted should get damages. Abbo can use some of the money he spends on relaxing his hair to pay her #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosDarts
“I call on the @OfficialPDPNig to immediately repudiate Senator Abbo in the face of overwhelming video evidence proving that he is not a man of fit and proper character to hold the distinguished office of a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria #FreeLeahSharibu #RenosDarts,” he tweeted.
