Sex Toy Shop Scandal: More Trouble For Senator Abbo As Abuja Ladies’ Vanguard Speak Up
Women in Abuja under the aegis of Abuja Ladies’ Vanguard yesterday called for caution on the issue of Senator Ezekiel Abbo .
Abbo , a Senator from Adamawa state was accused of assaulting a nursing mother in Abuja at a sex toy shop, which later went viral on the social media.
The Senator, who was arraigned in Court last week, had recently apologized to Nigerians, the Church, the woman and others over the assault .
The women , in a statement by their chairman, Mrs . Linda James said that Nigerians should know that the senator had apologized and seek for forgiveness.
She added that they should know that the case is in court and as such, the court should be allowed to do its work .
According to her , “Senator Ezekiel acknowledged that he was wrong and has apologized to all and beside the matter is in court and the court should be allowed to do its work”.
“To err is human, to forgive is divine. It is our culture that when one acknowledge is wrong doing and apologized that person should be forgiven . If he didn’ t apologize that would have been a different story entirely, but the young Senator went on air and was also in the newspapers, apologizing to Nigerians and everybody that he’ s sorry ”.
“We don ’t think that the issue should be belabored. The case should be allowed to rest and those involved should move on. Even if the Senator is jailed today would not revised what had happened. He has apologized and should be forgiven. ”
We can recall that in an emotion filled atmosphere , the embattled Senator called a world press conference where he tendered his apology over the incident which he termed regrettable and asked the woman , the church and indeed all Nigerians for forgiveness.
