A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting in Maitama, Abuja has awarded N50 million damages against the Senator representing Adamawa North, Senator Elisha Abbo, to be paid as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, a female attendant at a sex-toy shop, whom he assaulted.
Justice Samira Bature gave the order in her judgment on the fundamental rights enforcement suit instituted by Warmate against the senator.
Nelson Onuoha, a member of the team of lawyers that filed a civil suit against the lawmaker, disclosed this to PREMIUM TIMES on Monday.
Abel Ozioko, a counsel to the senator, also confirmed the ruling.
It will be recalled that the lawmaker was caught on camera physically assaulting a woman in Abuja. In the video, Abbo was seen descending on the woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom the Senator had accused of insulting him. He said the shop owner called him a drunk.
Following the video which went viral, many Nigerians condemned the act, calling for the lawmaker’s arrest.Pls SUBSCRIBE below to our Youtube channel and mailing list to get fresh updates on money making and inspiring videos and articles.
