The embattled Senator Elisha Abbo who was caught on camera assaulting a lady in an adult shop in Abuja has reacted to the viral video. Watch video here.
He said the video was an old video.
He said the incident happened long before he became Senator of Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Abbo who spoke on Channels Tv said the owner of the shop did not release full video of what happened on that day .
He said the shop owner erased the part showing where his younger sister was assaulted in the said shop.
The Senator also said that his team will release full statement on all that transpired in the viral video to the public.
Read his statement
We will soon release an official statement to the very old video that happened before I became a Senator; where my younger sister was beaten to a pulp in the shop and I was called upon there, I had to call an ambulance and the Police to get to the scene and it got out of hand.
They took her out to resuscitate her, the one standing with a cap there is a doctor; the doctor had to come to give her life.
All in the video happened long before I became a senator but that doesn’t mean that, not something that I am happy about, they cut out so many things.
This is a political season and now I am a politician, before I was not a politician but now the reality of the fact is that I am now a politician and politicians are not people who are liked, they exhume things of 20 years and they hang it on their neck now.
As I said before we will release a robust response to everything, and we will also ask for the entire video to be released since they have the video. We will seat and discuss the video. Just to be clear that video was taken long before now and it was released just as this point
