Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo has been ordered to pay a sum of N50m as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, a woman he assaulted at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
The Lawmaker was ordered by federal capital territory (FCT) high court on Monday.
Recall that an Abuja Magistrate’s Court sitting in Zuba had earlier this year upheld a no-case submission filed by Abbo despite video evidence presented before it.
However, Warmate proceeded to file a fundamental rights suit marked CV/2393/19 before the FCT high court.

Delivering judgment on Monday, the judge found Abbo guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the complainant.
Lugard Tare-Otu and Nelson who identified themselves as Warmate’s lawyers confirmed the court’s verdict on Twitter.
”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,” Nelson said.
