Following the outrage generated by the video showing a senator of the Federal Republic, Elijah Abbo, assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop in Abuja, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest of the senator and his orderly by an investigative team set up by the Police Force headquarters in Abuja.
Investigations are currently ongoing at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command into the alleged attack on a sales girl by a serving senator in Abuja.
The news of the attack went viral after a video recorded by the Close Circuit Television (CCTV), installed in the shop was shared on the social media, an act which is said to have embarrassed the police authorities.
The Police force says they are doing everything within their powers to restore dignity to the force, following the conduct of the police orderly attached to the senator.
The video which has been circulating on the internet shows the angry senator beat up the sales girl and ordered his police orderly to take her away.
And Lawan the president of Senate too had said “Following calls I received from within and outside the country, the condemnation of Nigerians and the points raised by my fellow colleagues, I have constituted an adhoc committee to investigate the allegation of assault preferred against Senator Elisha Abbo
The constitution of the committee is in line with my resolve to lead a National Assembly that is not only responsible but responsive to the people we represent. The committee is expected to turn in its report within two weeks.”
