The Nigerian Senator, Elisha Abbo, seen in a viral video assaulting a woman at a sex top shop in Abuja, has finally apologized.
The senator who has been under fire since the video surfaced on the internet yesterday took to his social media page to tender the apology after petitions were raised for his resignation.
This is coming after presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar asked him to tender a public apology to the woman and to Nigerians in general.
Commenting on the issue in his Twitter handle on Wednesday, Mr Abubakar, who is from Adamawa State, condemned the action of the lawmaker and admonished him to issue a public apology.
In his statement, Elisha Abbo tendered his apologies to the woman he assaulted and to all Nigerian women. He mentioned that he is not a violent individual and his life should not be defined by a 5-minute action.
However, some Nigerians have condemned this act even with the apology tendered saying the Senator is only crying when the head is off.
