Following the news of Senator Abbo Caught On Camera Assaulting A Lady, the video which is in circulation, has led to several protests telling the senator to step down,#senetorstepdown, to also be dropped by his Party and face the full rot of the law, due to concrete evidence.
The Senate have heard the people and as at yesterday, set up a seven(7) member panel to investigate the senator’s assault on a Lady at an adult toy shop in Abuja on May 11th, 2019.
The committee was set up after a full deliberation on a point of order raised by senator Uba Sani, a member of APC for Kaduna Central. He called the attention of the Senate to a video footage of the accused senator’s assault on a Lady that has gone viral.
He called for an immediate sanction on the senator, but with the intervention of other senators like Opeyemi Bamidele, Enyinnaya Abaribe and Yahaya Abdullahi who pleaded for fair hearing so as to hear both sides, a seven man committee was set up.
The committee members are; Sam Egwu, Oluremi Tinubu, Stella Oduah, Mathew Urhogide, Dauda Aliru, Sani Musa and Danladi Sankara. They are all senators.
The accused Senator has also released a statement apologizing to the lady in question and Nigerians in general.
“It is with a deep sense of remorse and responsibility that I, Senator Ishaku Abbo (SIA) profoundly apologize to all Nigerians, the Senate, the People’s Democratic Party(PDP), my family, friends and all mothers-the Nigerian Women.
I personally apologize to Bibra and her family for my action towards her, which has brought immense discomfort in our body polity.” “I have never been known or associated with such actions in the past. Regardless of what transpired prior to my expression of anger, I am sincerely sorry and plead that all men and women of good conscience should have the heart to forgive me. To err is human, to forgive is divine.”.
“To the church of God everywhere in the world, I am sorry. As an Ambassador of Christ, much is expected of me. My family and religious upbringing do not give approval to such conduct and for this, as a leader, I seek forgiveness before God and all those who feel offended by my actions.”
“Indeed, this episode has taught me a very great lesson both as a private citizen and a public officer, particularly as a senator of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria upon whom public confidence is bestowed. Finally, I assure Nigerians, especially the people of Adamawa North of my good conduct at all times.”
The committee has two weeks to submit their report.
