Yesterday, it was a viral video of a young Senator in the 9th senate, Senator Elisha Abbo attacking and beating up a woman who tried to prevent him and others with him from assaulting another woman.
Thou, Senator Elisha Abbo has reacted and claimed that the incident happened before he became a Senator.
Beyond that, the Senator claimed that the roughly 10-minute video was incomplete, claiming he was at the shop because his sister had been assaulted there and that part was left out.
“It was my sister that was at the store and she was assaulted; in fact, she fainted in the shop but they compressed the video and cut that part out of it.
In the CCTV video, the Senator had, however, not mentioned anything about his sister being assaulted. The video showed him seated in the shop for a while as activities went on. He then got on the phone, walked out of the office for a bit, came back in and sat down.
Four minutes into the video, he received another call. Shortly after, a policeman came in and he informed the policeman, that the shop attendant is his friend but that she insulted him.
“She is not my enemy; she is my friend. We are not enemies; she is my friend and I have known her for over five years. But she insulted me. She said I am drunk, I am stupid and I am mad,” he said before asking the policeman to take her away.
As he was speaking to the policeman, the lady made a call of her own to inform her father about what was going on, but the move angered Abbo, who ordered her to stop the call.
As she tried to round up the call, another man with Abbo tried to slap the phone away, prompting another woman in the shop to intervene.
After the woman asked the man to “take it easy”, Abbo flew into the raged and attacked her.
