Elisha Abbo Biography
Ishaku Elisha Cliff Abbo is a Nigerian politician. He is widely known as a violent politician notorious for physically assaulting two females in a sex toy shop in Abuja, Nigeria. In the CCTV video that has been widely circulated on social media, Elisha Abbo is aided by a Nigerian police officer who also participates in assaulting the females. Once looked upon as a new face of the youth in politics, Elisha has been shamed and disowned for such a behavior unfitting for a public office holder. There are protests ongoing for his arrest. He is the senator representing the Adamawa North Adamawa State senatorial district in Adamawa State at the Nigerian 9th National Assembly.

Elisha Abbo Political career
On February 23, 2019, Abbbo was elected as the Senator representing Adamawa North, having polled 79,337 votes as against the incumbent senator, Binta Masi Garba of the APC, who scored the closest votes with 63,219.
The case of Senator Elisha Abbo is very straightforward: the Police MUST IMMEDIATELY take three steps: 1. Arrest him (no formal complaint is needed with the evidence on tape) 2. Obtain his statement (if he’s willing to make one) and that of the victim 3. Arraign him in court.

Elisha Abbo Criticism
On July 2, 2019, Abbo was caught in the act of physically abusing a nursing mother inside a sex shop in Abuja. In his response to the criticism, Abbo claimed the adult store owner called him a drunk. So many Nigerians have however frowned at not just the senator’s barbaric and animalistic behavior, but also that of the uniformed Nigerian police officer whom the Nigerian police force has refused to fish out, for not just keeping quiet, but also joining hands in the assault by arresting the woman in question, who was at the time a Nursing Mother.
I just watched the video of Senator Elisha Abbo beating up a shop attendant. That Senator has the capacity for murder. He is a threat to humanity. His fellow senators must condemn that barbarian act, the ones that aren’t Barbarians themselves. He should be made to pay for that!

Majority of Nigerians are Senator Elisha Abbo without power. Give them small power and they will show you "how it is done."
The cultural value of the entity called Nigeria (not the culture of the various ethnic groups within it) is flawed, toxic, abusive.

Elisha Abbo Arrest Order
Police IG orders arrest of Sen. Elisha Abbo, for slapping a nursing mother
The news of the attack went viral after a video recorded by the Close Circuit Television (CCTV), installed in the shop was shared on the social media, an act which is said to have embarrassed the police authorities. The Police say they are doing everything within their powers to restore dignity to the force, following the conduct of the police orderly attached to the senator. According to Police sources, the incident actually happened in a sex-toy shop in Abuja, where the senator had gone to make purchases. The video which has been circulating the internet shows the angry senator beat up the sales girl, and ordered his police orderly to take her away.
Senator Elisha Abbo is not above the law. Police @PoliceNG must investigate allegations against him. Victims of his assault must get justice. @MBuhari @ProfOsinbajo @NGRSenate @unwomenafrica @WRAPANG @stelladamasus @FakhuusHashim @obyezeks @FunkeBaruwa @buky @AishaYesufu pic.twitter.com/EHHhFCrewD
