The Inspector General of Police has ordered full investigation into the alleged physical assault by a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Elisha Abbo, on a nursing mother.
It will be recalled that in a video exclusively published by Premium Times, Elisha Abbo had allegedly on May 11 2019, three months after being elected a senator and about a month before he was officially sworn-in, assaulted a nursing mother for telling him to “take it easy” in a sex toy shop in Abuja.
Elisha Abbo is the youngest Nigerian senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District.
The Inspector General of Police also assured Nigerians of “highest degree of professionalism” in handling the matter.
On its verified twitter handle, the police wrote:
“IGP orders comprehensive and holistic investigation into the incident of an alleged assult on a female Nigerian by Senator Elisha Abbo.
“IGP assured citizens of the highest degree of professionalism in the handling of the incident.”
