- Just recently, veteran Nollywood actress, Hilda Dokubo, took to social media to react after discovering that controversial Nigerian senator, Elisha Abbo, was made a patron of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN)
- Dokubo demanded that Abbo be delisted as patron as she recounted how he was caught on camera slapping a woman at an adult toy shop in Abuja
- The president of the AGN, Emeka Rollas, has now reacted to Dokubo’s demand
Things are not always easy for women in the society and it was with dismay that people saw the video of a young Nigerian senator, Elisha Abbo, slapping and harassing a woman at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
The slapping video caused a lot of uproar on social media with people calling for the head of the senator. He eventually apologised and the matter seemed to have been forgotten.
However, it is no news that the evil people do lives after them and the ugly head of Senator Abbo’s sins lifted its head again after veteran actress, Hilda Dokubo, noticed that he was listed as one of the grand patrons of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
The actress called out the guild on social media and demanded that Abbo be delisted from the patrons of the guild.
The president of the AGN, Emeka Rollas, has finally reacted to Dakubo’s demand. In an interview with Plus TV, Rollas defended Abbo’s appointment.
He said that a panel was set up at the senate to penalise Abbo over the issue and that who is the AGN to get robed in such cases. He also said that the senator apologised for his act of violence against the lady and that the lady has not said that his apology was not accepted.
Rollas expressed displeasure at how Dokubo handled the matter and he said that she claims to be a member of the guild but she did not write a letter or call to air her grievances but that she made a video on social media just to draw attention to herself.
Rollas also spoke on how grand patrons were appointed based on the impact they have had on the guild and in the zones they are representing.
