A federal high court i Abuja has found Senator Elisha Abo, representing Adamawa North guilty of assaulting Osimibibra Warmate during an encounter in sex toy shop back in 2019.
In the civil case filed by Warmate’s legal representatives, Samira Bature, the judge in the case ordered the senator to pay N50 million in damages to Osimibibra Warmate.
Abbo had been charged for the assault in 2019 in a criminal case filed by the police at a magistrate court in Zuba,.
The magistrate who held the case then, Abdullahi Ilelah, however dismissed the case for lack of diligent prosecution by the police.
Warmate then filed a civil law suit before an Abuja high court. Her lawyers, Lugard Tare-Otu and Nelson posted a statement of the verdict on twitter saying, ”Remember that video of a Nigerian senator slapping/assaulting a young lady at a shop?
“Well justice was served today with the court slamming the sum of N50M against the Senator. I am delighted to have represented that young lady in this suit. We say no more to oppression.”
