Senator Elisha Abbo, Slaps Another Citizen Repeatedly In Trending Video Despite being Fined For Assaulting Woman

Nineteen months after assaulting a nursing mother, Senator Elisha Abbo, has again been caught on video slapping a young man repeatedly in his hometown in Adamawa State.

Abbo, representing the Adamawa North Senatorial District, was seen assaulting a young man in a video posted by a Twitter user, @Jacfelixchidama.

The Senator first came to the limelight in 2019, when he was captured in a video beating a female attendant, Osimibibra Warmat, at a sex shop in Abuja.

The assault was done in the presence of an armed policeman who, rather than protect the victim, arrested her.

The police later arraigned Abbo before a Magistrate Court in Zuba, on a one-count charge of assault.

Despite video evidence of the incident, Abdullahi Ilelah, the Magistrate, upheld the no-case submission filed by the lawmaker and dismissed the case.

However, Warmate instituted a separate civil suit at the FCT High Court and on September 28, Samira Bature, the presiding Judge, convicted Abbo and ordered him to pay N50 million as compensation to her.
