A High court of the Federal Capital Territory has ordered Adamawa North senatorial representative, Senator Elisha Abbo to pay N50m as damages to Osimibibra Warmate, the lady he assaulted in 2019.
Premium Times had in July 2019 revealed camera footage showing Senator Abbo physically assaulting a lady (now identified as Miss Warmate) in a shop.
Although Sen. Abbo has apologized publicly for his actions in a press conference at the PDP headquarters in Abuja, Warmate legal team sued the senator for violation of fundamental human rights before the FCT court.
Justice Samira Bature who was the presiding judge over the hearing today found Senator Abbo guilty and ordered him to pay N50million for damages.
Senator Abbo's legal representative, Abel Ozioko has already declared that they would appeal against the judgement.
