Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has called for the arrest and prosecution of the serving senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo, following the attacks he unleashed on a nursing mother and shop attendant at an undisclosed sex-toy shop in Abuja.

The Rights group also applauded his political party – Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, for condemning the misconduct of a senator elected on its platform.

HURIWA also asked the media to be professional in its reportage so as not to indulge in the disclosure of the private health status of the said senator.

In a statement sent to DAILY POST on Wednesday by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA applauded “the decision of the hierarchy of the Senate; the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu and the national leadership of the PDP for swiftly embarking on the immediate investigation of the matter.

HURIWA added, “the thorough, transparent and open investigation, prosecution of the Senator before the competent court of law in line with section 6 of the Nigerian Constitution would convey the direct message that nobody is above the law just as the Rights group believes that the victim of his unprovoked attacks must be adequately protected and granted legal remedies for those violations.

“HURIWA is hereby appealing to the media to leave out the health status of the Senator out of their reports to avoid ethical issues that may arise from the unwarranted intrusions into his private medical records,” the statement added.
