A video has surfaced online showing Elisha Abbo, a senator representing Adamawa North, calling for a Lagos party over Laycon’s Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) triumph.
Laycon, a reality TV star whose real name is Olamilekan Agbelesebioba, snagged the N85 million prize for the 2020 edition of the BBNaija on Sunday night.
But in a viral video that surfaced online on Tuesday, the senator can be seen bragging that it is not possible for a person like him to support Laycon and the musician would lose the prize.
“Congratulations Laycon. All Marlians come here. Gather here today. I cannot support Laycon. And Laycon lose,” the controversial senator can be heard saying in the video.
“I told you Laycon is coming home with the money. Laycon is home with the money. We’re going to Lagos for a party. Naira Marley come here Let’s go and Party for Laycon.”

In 2019, Abbo had been at the receiving end of public criticism after he was arraigned before a court on a one-count charge for assaulting a woman at a sex-toy shop in the city of Abuja.
On Monday, a federal capital territory (FCT) found the senator guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the complainant, who is identified as Osimibibra Warmate.
