The Nigerian Feminists Forum, NFF, have slammed Senator Remi Tinubu over the sex toy shop assault saga involving Senator Elisha Abbo.
NFF accused Tinubu of trying to grant Elisha Abbo a soft landing following a statement which she made at a senate committee hearing on the issue.
Chiwendu Esther, the NFF National Coordinator, in a statement issued on Wednesday said:
“We wish to commend the Senate on the ad-hoc panel set up to investigate the assault of a woman by Senator Ishaku Elisha Abbo.
“However, in a now viral video from Abbo’s hearing with this panel, Oluremi Tinubu can be heard saying “do you want us to protect you? Or do you want us to defend you? Or do you want to be on your own?
“This statement implies that the Senate may be willing to protect and defend a man who was caught on video physically assaulting an innocent woman.”
NFF added that setting Elisha Abbo free will send a strong message that certain persons can be above the law in the country.
