The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Maitama, Abuja , on Monday , awarded N 50 m damages against the senator representing Adamawa North , Elisha Abbo, to be paid as compensation to a female attendant at a sex -toy shop , Osimibibra Warmate , whom he assaulted .
Justice Samira Bature gave the order in her judgment on the fundamental rights enforcement suit instituted by Warmate against the senator .
The video clip of the alleged assault of the woman by the senator had gone viral.
The police had in 2019 charged before a magistrate court in Zuba , Abuja with one count of assaulting Warmate at a sex- toy shop in Abuja .
But the presiding magistrate , Abdullahi Ilelah, had dismissed the case after upholding the no – case submission filed by the senator .
Warmate , through her legal team including Esosa Omo – Usoh and Nelson Onuoha, went on to sue Abbo in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed before the FCT High Court and marked FCT / CV / 2393/ 19 .
Justice Bature upheld the plaintiff ’s case in a judgment on Monday by ordering the senator to pay N 50 m to the applicant .
