Stella Damasus lashed out at Nigerians after the outrage against Senator Elisha took a slow pace weeks after he was seen in a viral video slapping a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
The veteran actress also expressed her disgust to a video of Senator Elisha who recently bagged an Icon award allegedly defending and trying to justify the assault. Stella Damasus wondered if the Senator representing Adamama North Senatorial district has been let off the hook even with a video evidence, and further stated that it will be shameful if Nigeria tolerates and accept it.
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.
