The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory has on Monday awarded damages of N50 million against Senator Elisha Abbo.
Senator Abbo was ordered by the court to pay the money to Osimibibra Warmate, the woman he was caught on camera assaulting in March 2019.
The civil judgment is coming in weeks after a Magistrate Court in Zuba, Abuja acquitted the Adamawa-North lawmaker of charges of assault instituted against him by the police. Magistrate Abdullahi Ilelah had upheld a no-case submission filed by Mr. Abbo stating that the police failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the lawmaker assaulted the Complainant.
