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

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

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 limelight in 2019, when he was captured in a video beating a female attendant, Osimibibra Warmat, at a sex shop in Abuja.

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.

Meanwhile, the latest video has sparked outrage on social media.

A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered Senator Elisha Abbo “Slapping Senator” to pay N50 million damages fee to the woman he slapped in a s*x toy shop, few months ago.

Disclosing this on Monday, Lugard Tare-Otu and Nelson who identified themselves as Warmate’s lawyers, confirmed the situation.

Recall with Noble Reporters Media that Elisha Abbo who happens to be the youngest Senator in Nigeria, assaulted the owner of the shop he went to purchase some s*x toys by slapping and accusing her of poising her Air Conditioner.

This was because one of the ladies that accompanied him felt sick immediatly they entered the shop and she started throwing up.

The shop owner however replied the senator by saying that if the air conditioner was contaminated, others in the shop would have also taken ill.

This reply 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.

Senator Abbo however tendered an apology to the woman, days after the assault. He mentioned that regardless of the provocation, his action did not portray him a good ambassador of the Senate, the PDP and the youths of Nigeria.

In his words;

“It is with a deep sense of remorse and responsibility that I, Senator Ishaku Abbo profoundly apologize to all Nigerians, the Senate, the Peoples Democratic Party, my family as well as our mothers- the Nigerian women. “I personally apologize to Babra (the lady he reportedly assaulted) and her family for my action which has brought immense discomfort to our body polity.”

“l have never been known or associated with such actions in the past. Regardless of what transpired prior to my expression of anger, I am sincerely sorry and plead that all men and women of good conscience should have the heart to forgive me. To err is human, to forgive is divine.”

“To the Church of God everywhere in the world, I am sorry. As an Ambassador of Christ, much is expected of me. My family and religious upbringing do not give approval to such conduct and for this, as a leader, I seek forgiveness before God and all those who feel offended by my action. “

“Indeed, this episode has taught me a very great lesson both as a private citizen and a public officer particularly as a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria upon whom public confidence is reposed.”

Magistrate court dismisses suit against senator Abbo

A Magistrate Court in Zuba on the outskirts of Abuja has dismissed the case of assault instituted by the Nigeria Police Force against the lawmaker representing Adamawa-North, Senator Elisha Abbo.

Although there is a viral video showing Senator Abbo assaulting a woman, Osimibibra Warmate; and a televised press conference in which the lawmaker apologised to the victim, the court dismissed the suit for lack of diligent prosecution by the police.

The Magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, who upheld a no-case submission filed by Senator Abbo, said the police failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the lawmaker indeed assaulted Osimibibra Warmate on May 11, 2019.

During the trial, two witnesses testified against Senator Abbo and they are Warmate who was the nominal complainant and a police officer, ASP Mary Daniel, who investigated the matter.

In her testimony, Warmate said she had gone to visit a friend, Kemi at Pleasure Chest Sex Toy Shop, Banex Plaza, Wuse 2, Abuja on May 11, 2019, when the lawmaker walked in with three women.

She said suddenly, one of the women that accompanied Abbo started vomiting and later fainted.

Warmate said when she left the shop, she received a frantic call from the owner of the shop asking her to come to her aid as the lawmaker had accused her of fouling the shop’s air conditioning system that caused one of his female companions to vomit and was threatening to get her arrested.

The victim said when she returned to the shop and was cleaning up the vomit, two men, one of whom was a policeman in uniform, barged into the shop, assaulted them on the orders of Senator Elisha Abbo.

Why we choose Sen. Abbo as AGN patron – President, Rollas open up.


Senator Elisha Abbo’s appointment as one of the Patrons of Actors Guild of Nigeria has been defended by its President Emeka Rollas.

Rollas has defended the association’s decision, in response to criticisms by some popular Nollywood key players.


Actress Hilda Dokubo kicked against it, recalling how the lawmaker was spotted in a video assaulting a nursing mother in a sex toy shop.

Dokubo stated that making an “abuser of women a Patron of Actors Guild of Nigeria is an unpardonable abuse”.


Another Nollywood great, Kate Henshaw called out Rollas over the appointment.

Emeka Rollas, stated that since the Senator had come out to apologise for slapping a woman, there is no need to bring up the issue again.

He also added that some of the celebs who are coming out to bash the decision are not even actual members of the guild.

Presidency react as Dokubo reject Elisha Abbo as AGN patron – says..


Emeka Rollas, president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), has responded to Hilda Dokubo’s recent criticism over the appointment of Elisha Abbo, senator representing Adamawa north, as patron of the body.

NobleReporters had reported how the veteran actress condemned the lawmaker’s appointment.


Abbo had attracted negative attention after he was captured in a video beating a female attendant at a sex shop in Abuja in May 2019.

Recall with NobleReporters that Actress Kate Henshaw also reject senator Abbo’s appointment as AGN patron.

Don’t Miss:

Actress Kate Henshaw reject Sen. Abbo as AGN patron – says ‘we don’t want to be slapped’.

Dokubo, who described the legislator as a “abuser of women”, had called for the immediate withdrawal of his appointment.

But reacting to Dokubo’s criticism while speaking with Plus TV Africa, Rollas defended the guild’s decision while saying such comments were mere attempt to sentimentalize the issue.


The AGN president added that it would be unfair for people to see the lawmaker in a bad light even after he had apologised for his action.

Asked if he didn’t watch the video of Abbo slapping the lady, he replied: “You saw the slap, did you also see the apology.”


When further asked if such apology was enough, he said: “It doesn’t count. What you should be asking here is that did he come out to apologise? Yes, he did.

“Did the woman involved said she didn’t accept the apology in all of these that we are saying. When I mentioned morality and legality, you ask of who is holier than senator Abbo?.


“There was a committee set up in the senate on this same matter and the committee did not convict him. Is the Actors Guild of Nigeria a body to be used to do all of these? People should just go and sit down, there’s no point sentimentalising issues maybe just to drive a point.


“We know the stage where people who are fighting for human rights operate, not within the confines where AGN revolves. I don’t want to begin to mention names but if we begin to dig into people’s personal lives, those who raised the issue may not even stand the morality test, but I don’t want to go that way.”

He also wondered why the actress would decide to take the issue to social media when she could have drawn the attention of the AGN for dialogue.

“When you go on social media to raise an issue that should addressed inhouse, I don’t know whom you are trying to impress,” he added.

“Unfortunately, for whoever that is shouting is that decisions of an organisation or association is not what you get on social media.”
