The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court, Maitama, has ordered Adamawa senator, Elisha Abbo, to pay N50 million as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, a lady he assaulted in 2019.

The civil judgement is coming in weeks after a Magistrate Court in Zuba, Abuja acquitted the Adamawa-North lawmaker of charges of assault instituted against him by the police.

Delivering the judgement on Monday, Justice Samira Bature found the senator guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the plaintiff as compensation.

Magistrate Abdullahi Ilelah had upheld a no-case submission filed by Mr Abbo stating that the police failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the lawmaker assaulted the Complainant
The incident occurred barely three months after Mr Abbo was elected senator and a month before he was sworn in on June 11, 2019.
The video showed the senator physically assaulting the woman, whom he accused of insulting him by calling him “a drunk”.
