Court Fines Abbo N50m For Assaulting Woman At Sex-toy Shop

A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court has ordered Senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo to pay N50 million as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate for assaulting her at a sex-toy shop in Abuja.

The video clip of the alleged assault of the woman by the lawmaker had in 2019 gone viral on social media.

The police subsequently arraigned Abbo before a magistrate court in Zuba, Abuja, on a one-count charge for assaulting Warmate.

Despite a video evidence of the incident, the magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, upheld the no-case submission filed by the senator, dismissing the police case.

But 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.

Delivering judgement on Monday, Judge Samira Bature, found Abbo guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the complainant.
