Human rights lawyer, Festus Keyamo, has called for the immediate arrest of Elisha Abbo, senator representing Adamawa north district, for assaulting a nursing mother.

The lawmaker was caught in a video tape hitting the woman at a shop in the Wuse area of Abuja.

Although the video surfaced online on Tuesday, the incident was reported to have occurred on May 11, a month before Abbo, the youngest Nigerian senator, was sworn in.

Reacting in a tweet on Tuesday, Keyamo said the case is “straightforward” and that there is enough evidence for prosecution.

“The case of Senator Abbo is 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 is willing to make one and that of the victim. 3) Arraign him in court,” he tweeted.
