A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has awarded N50 million damages against Senator Abbo Elisha for his violent assault on a worker identified as Osimibibra Warmate in a sex toy shop in Abuja.
Recall that Senator Abbo was seen in a viral video in 2019 abusing and hitting the shop attendant and later sent his escorts to deal with her.
The video surfaced online with many people blasting Abbo which led him to apologise to Nigerians and to the shop attendant.
A criminal case against the lawmaker was earlier this year dismissed by a Chief Magistrates Court citing insufficient evidence and failure of the prosecution to prove its case.
However, the Senate committee that investigated the incident submitted its report last October, but the report has not been considered because the case was in court.
Remember, the Nigerian Senate resumes tomorrow 29th September 2020.
