Atiku, who is also from Adamawa State like the Senator, 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.”
