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


An Abuja High Court, on Monday, awarded N50m damages against the senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo for beating up a female attendant at a sex toy shop.

Justice Samira Bature, in her judgment, ordered the Senator to pay the amount as compensation to the woman, Osimibibra Warmate, whom he assaulted.

Warmate had filed a fundamental rights enforcement suit against the senator for the assault.

The police had in 2019 charged Abbo before a magistrate court in Zuba, Abuja, for assaulting Warmate at a sex-toy shop after the video clip of the incident went viral.

Warmate, through her lawyers, Esosa Omo-Usoh and Nelson Onuoha, dragged Abbo before the FCT High Court in the suit marked FCT/CV/2393/19 after the presiding magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, dismissed the case after upholding the no-case submission filed by the senator.

In her judgment on Monday, Justice Bature upheld the woman’s case and ordered Abbo to pay N5m as compensation.
