Twitter outrage over court room selfies by Shameless “adult toy shop” Nigerian senator
London, July 9, 2019 (AltAfrica)- Twitter loving Nigerians have lambasted Senator Abbo who was arraigned by the police on Monday for allegedly assaulting a nursing woman in an adult toy shop in Abuja. Nigerian seat of power
The latest outrage stemmed from a video posted on twitter by Sahara Reporters where the senator who publicly shed crocodile tears and begged for forgiveness last week was seen taking selfies with some of his supporters in the courtroom
The senator, who smiled throughout the proceedings without an iota of remorse was arraigned on offence bordering on criminal force and assault which is contrary to section 263 and 264 of the penal code.
Abbo mounted the dock at 2:55 pm and pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge brought against him. He was granted bail of N5 million with two sureties having a verifiable address within the Federal Capital Territory.
Expectedly, Nigerians have reacted to the video with anger and disgust.

This guy didnt feel remorseful, he just felt embarrassed.— AyeMojuba 💕🇳🇬 (@ayemojubar) July 8, 2019
Getting a bail of N5M is an insult on all women that had been assaulted like this, since the offender knew it’s all about cash.
If I were to suggest, he should have served as an attendant in that sex toy shop for a week.

Nigeria’s Judicial System, the worst in Africa!
So after Elisha Abbo publicly begged Nigerians for forgiveness, he went to court and pleaded not guilty.
Then was granted 5m bail!@MBuhari
He doesn’t have to look depleted before we know he has realized his mistakes!!! He’s facing it and let’s wait to see the outcome before we judge!! #SexToyShopscandal— JO (@jbonfere24) July 8, 2019
