The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has summoned Senator Elisha Abbo, its member caught on a CCTV footage assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop in Abuja.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the opposition party described itself as a law-abiding and upstanding party that will not condone such “act of lawlessness and callousness as exhibited in the video and will, therefore, never condone it”

“Our party is also shocked that the harmless victim of the unprovoked assault is said to be a nursing mother, who ought to be protected.

“Though this is personal conduct of an individual which has no bearing with the culture of our party.

“The PDP, however, holds that no responsible person will condone such an attitude.”

“In the light of this, the NWC has commenced investigation into the matter and has summoned Senator Elisha Abbo, in line with the provisions of the Constitution of the PDP and code of conduct of our members.”

The opposition party also expressed its support of the decision of the Senate to set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate the incident on Wednesday.

“The PDP, at all levels of engagement, is reputed for her utmost respect and commitment towards the rights, safety and wellbeing of our citizens, particularly our women, and cannot tolerate any callous assault on any Nigerian,” the party said.

It also added that it will not cover up any member found breaking the law, especially those elected or appointed into public offices.
