Sex toy assault: Court fines senator N50m

Senator Elisha Abbo, representing Adamawa north, is to pay N50 million as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate for assaulting her, according to a federal capital territory (FCT) high court.

In 2019, the police arraigned Abbo before a magistrate court in Zuba, on a one-count charge for assaulting Warmate at a sex-toy shop in Abuja.

Despite a video evidence of the incident, Abdullahi Ilelah, the magistrate, upheld the no-case submission filed by the lawmaker and dismissed the case.

However, Warmate proceeded to file a fundamental rights suit marked before the FCT high court.

Delivering judgment on Monday, the judge found Abbo guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the complainant.

Warmate’s lawyers have confirmed the court’s verdict on Twitter.

They said, “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.”
