The only glue to properly hold ABS together is a proprietary ABS cement, obtainable from wherever you buy the pipes and fittings. 

The ABS Cement actually disolves the surface of the materials, just like the old polystyrene cement does, and forms a completely homogenous bond.

I prefer Stablit Express and Devcon Plastic Welder and Superglue.
I've also used plumbers plastic pipe solvent but be careful it's strong stuff!
