A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered Senator Elisha Abbo PDP, the Senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo to pay the sum of N50million to Osimibibra Warmate, the nursing mother he assaulted at an adult toy shop.
Recall that in July 2020, a magistrate court in Zuba found the senator not guilty of criminal assault.
However, Ms Warmate proceeded to file a fundamental human right suit before the FCT High Court.
Ms Warmate’s lawyers, Lugard Tare-Otu and Nelson, confirmed the delivery of the judgement on Monday via a tweet.
“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,” Mr Nelson wrote.
