The case of assault on a nursing mother instituted against Senator Elisha Abbo has been dismissed by a Magistrate Court in Zuba, Abuja.
Flowing a video that showed Abbo assaulting a woman, Osimibibra Warmate, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on July 8, 2019 charged the senator representing Adamawa-North before the magistrate court for assault.
In her testimony, during the trial, Warmate told the court that she was attacked by the senator at a Pleasure Chest S*x Toy Shop in Wuse 2, Abuja on May 11, 2019.
However, after Warmate and a police ASP, Mary Daniel, who investigated the matter testified in the case, Abbo filed a no-case submission.
Ruling on Abbo’s no-case submission, the court Magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, held that the police and the applicant failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the lawmaker actually committed the offence levelled against him.
The judgment came despite the fact that Senator Abbo had, in a televised press conference, apologised to the victim and Nigerians for his alleged act.
