I don't know if it harms ABS, but I've removed adhesive from ABS with
waterless hand cleaner, like Gojo or Goop. It takes a few minutes to
soften the glue.
Mineral Spirits
Propylene Glycol

I've already tried mineral spirits. It didn't work on the rubberish
goo imbedded in the textured surface. However, it can't hurt to try
Goop as I have some handy.

Another cheap household chemical to try: Hand Sanitizer. Basically
ethanol that doesn't evaporate (quickly), but all sorts of ingredients
(Ethanol, Propylene Glycol, Vitamin E). They (Infectiguard brand) say
it's not safe with all plastics.

I had a jam jar come out of the dishwasher the other night with
some old label residue, so I thought I'd double check my assertion
about a soybean oil soak. Overnight, and it didn't touch it. ;-(

Looking around, there was the hand sanitizer dispenser. Sliming up
the affected spot with sanitizer and waiting for a couple of hours,
it cleaned up the residue pretty well.

Chances are, it will still be a war of attrition.
