Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president and presidential candidate of the PDP in the last general election, has called on the police to “ensure the law takes its full course” against a senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo.
Mr Abbo appears in a CCTV footage, published by Premium Times slapping a nursing mother who was trying to calm him down not to beat another woman.
The assault, which reportedly occurred on May 11, 2019, was done in the presence of an armed policeman, who rather than assist the victim, arrested her.
In a tweet from his verified account, Mr Atiku also called on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to take necessary disciplinary action against the senator.
“I advise him to publicly apologize, voluntarily go to the police and show a good example expected of a young leader. I also call on our party, the @OfficialPDPNig to take necessary disciplinary action and the @PoliceNG to ensure the law takes its full course. -AA,” Mr Atiku said.
