The National Council for Women Society (NCWS), FCT Chapter, has called on the United Nations to ensure that Senator Elisha Abbo is prosecuted for assaulting a lady.

Concise News had reported that Senator Elisha Abbo was caught in a video, last week, assaulting a nursing mother in a sex toy shop in Abuja.

Although Senator Abbo has apologised and is being investigated by the police, the FCT chair of NCWS, Hadiza Umar, on Sunday, advocated for stiffer punishment for the Adamawa lawmaker.

Umar said: “I am here with my executives and members of NCWS FCT chapter for a peaceful demonstration on what an elected senator, who is supposed to serve us did to one of our women.

“We want to stop the barbaric habits on women either at home, in the markets, shops, workplace and everywhere in the country.

“We are women of integrity and mothers. We are not animals and we are saying no to violence against all women and the assault should stop with immediate effect.”

She thus called on the UN and other international organisations to ensure the prosecution of Abbo.

“We reject his apology and we will do everything within the ambit of law to demand justice for our fellow woman who was assaulted.”
