Sex Shop Assault: Remi Tinubu, Senator Abbo’s altercation sparks mixed reactions on Twitter [Video]

The altercation between Senator Remi Tinubu (APC-Lagos Central) and Senator Elisha Abbo (PDP-Adamawa North) accused of assaulting a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja, has sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians on micro-blogging site Twitter.

WuzupNaija reports that while appearing before the six-man panel set up by the Senate to investigate his alleged assault in a viral video, the embattled Senator Abbo, on Tuesday challenged members of the investigative panel that he had no business appearing and making comments about the matter anywhere since the case was already in court.

He, however, said his presence was out of honour for his colleagues.

Senator Tinubu who is also a member of the panel expressed displeasure over Abbo’s comment and this led to an altercation between the two Senators.

Tinubu thereafter informed Abbo that he could be suspended over his action, this comment irked him as he said he won’t allow the committee to threaten him with suspension. He added that he is a Senator like other members of the panel.

While the duo engaged in a hot argument, other members of the panel looked on and attempt by the Chairman of the panel Senator Sam Egwu to intervene was rebuffed by Tinubu.

The video of their face-off which emerged on social media sparked mixed reactions among Nigerians.

While many were of the opinion that Abbo sounded rude with the manner he reacted to the investigative panel, others opined that Tinubu didn’t address Abbo with some respect as a fellow Senator.
