A Nigerian senator who allegedly assaulted a lady at a sex toy shop in the capital Abuja would soon know the decision of the senate.

The Senate’s Ad-Hoc Committee investigating a case of assault against Senator Elisha Abbo submitted its report on Tuesday to the upper chamber.

The report was presented during the plenary by Chairman of the Ad-Hoc committee, Senator Sam Egwu (PDP, Ebonyi North).

Senator Elisha Abbo

The lawmaker was seen in a video clip which was widely circulated online having an altercation with the lady in question.

Abbo allegedly assaulted the woman for taking side with the shop owner whom the lawmaker had accused of insulting him.
