A Federal High Court in Abuja has Monday ordered Senator Elisha Abbo PDP, Adamawa North who slapped a nursing mother repeatedly at a sex toy shop on May 11, 2019 to pay the sum of fifty million naira (N50m), to Osimibibra Warmate for assault.
The Incident: The youngest senator was said to have entered a sex toy shop around 6pm, with three young women to purchase adult toys. But shortly after they began shopping for the toys, one of the three girls started throwing up.
She vomited multiple times, prompting the shop owner to remark that the woman should have vomited outside and not inside her shop. Abbo, who was said to be agitated by the sudden illness of the girl, was said to have accused the shop owner of poisoning the store’s air conditioner.
The shop owner’s argument that if the air conditioner had been contaminated others in the shop would have also taken ill was said to have angered Abbo, and the two began exchanging words over the matter.
The senator was said to have called a policeman who he then ordered to arrest the shop owner. The shop owner quickly called her father to inform him that Abbo had called police over the matter and that she was about to be taken away. The shop owner’s friend who had been standing nearby tried to intervene by pleading with the second man to take things easy but was slapped repeatedly by the lawmaker.
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! https://t.co/zM9zQlEcH7
