The Nigerian feminist forum have rebuked Remi Tinubu for offering to protect Senator Abbo while he was being questioned by a committe set up by the Senate over the alleged assault in a s*x toy shop.
Remi Tinubu in a video which went viral online was heard asking Senator Abbo if he wanted protection from Senate.
In a Statement signed and released by its National Coordinator, Chinwedu Esther , NFF called for an end to impunity while advising that letting the Senator off the hook will send a message that people in power are above the law .
The Statement reads
We wish to commend the Senate on the ad-hoc panel set up to investigate the assault of a woman by Senator Ishaku Elisha Abbo.
However, in a now viral video from Abbo’s hearing with this panel, Oluremi Tinubu can be heard saying “do you want us to protect you? Or do you want us to defend you? Or do you want to be on your own?
This statement implies that the Senate may be willing to protect and defend a man who was caught on video physically assaulting an innocent woman.
