A Twitter user, Chima Amadi has said that the video of a Nigerian Senator, Elisha Abba assaulting a woman at a sex toy shop is ‘doctored’.

Concise News reports that Amadi’s claim is most probably sarcastic though.

Senator Elisha (representing Adamawa North Senatorial District) has come under heavy criticism after CCTV taped him slapping a woman who is reported to be a nursing mother repeatedly.

The clip was obtained by Premium Times after the incident happened in May. At that time, the under-fire politician was still a Senator-elect.

Amadi writes on his Twitter handle on Wednesday: “I stand by Senator Elisha Abba. I simply don’t know the technology they used but that video is doctored. Abba is a responsible leader.”

Dr Amadi is the pioneer National Coordinator of the Independent Service Delivery Monitoring Group (ISDMG).

He holds a Post Graduate Degree from the University of Ibadan (UI). He was at one time the Secretary-General of UI Students Union and until 2005 was the National Youth Leader of the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Memorial Association.
