Court fines senator Abbo N50m for assaulting woman at sex-toy shop

The FCT High Court has entered judgment against Senator Elisha Abbo for assaulting a woman in a Sex toy shop in Abuja.

The assault captured in a video went viral more than a year ago.

In 2019, the police arraigned Abbo before a magistrate court in Zuba, on a one-count charge for assaulting Osimibibra Warmate.

N50 million was awarded in favour of the plaintiff.

It would be recalled that in July 2020 a court dismissed charges against Abbo.

The magistrate ruled that the evidence and exhibits tendered to the court did not prove the criminal charges against the lawmaker, despite a video recording showing the assault and an apology from the senator admitting his wrong.

Subsequently, Warmate, through her legal team including Esosa Omo-Usoh and Nelson Onuoha, went on to sue Abbo in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed before the FCT High Court and marked FCT/CV/2393/19.

Justice Bature upheld the plaintiff’s case in a judgment on Monday by ordering the senator to pay N50m to the applicant.
