‘So Shameful That This Could Be Tolerated’ – Stella Damasus Reacts To Senator Abbo Receiving An Award For Excellence

Nigerian actress Stella Damasus has reacted to the award Senator Elisha Abbo recently received in Abuja, after a video of him slapping a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja went viral.

The veteran actress also expressed her disgust that such action can be tolerated and that the senator can still be celebrated despite what he did.

She tweeted;

Was I dreaming or was there a Nigerian senator who slapped a woman on video? If I was not dreaming, did we just stop talking about it? Has he really been left 2 walk free? Did I just see a video of him defending and justify himself? Okay I must be dreaming then. I need to wake up

So this means that when someone commits a crime and it’s caught on video, it still does not mean anything. Everything goes back to normal and we just move on? How are we okay with this? So when something new comes up, we forget the one that happened before? How?

So shameful for my country NIGERIA to tolerate and accept this. So shameful that we have decided to keep quiet and let it go. Hope no one comes crying out when it happens to them or someone close to them.

    Nigeria is a country where abnormality is taken as normal. Even for the said senator to still be passing laws speak volume, more to talk of the shameless group that think of honoring such a person now is disheartening.
