In 2019, the police arraigned Abbo before a magistrate court in Zuba, on a one-count charge for assaulting Warmate at a sex-toy shop in Abuja. 


Despite a video evidence of theincident, Abdullahi Ilelah, the magistrate, upheld the no-case submission filed by the lawmaker and dismissed the case.


However, Warmate proceeded to file a fundamental rights suit marked CV/2393/19 before the FCT high court.

Delivering judgment on Monday, the judge found Abbo guilty and ordered him to pay N50 million to the complainant.


Lugard Tare-Otu and Nelson who identified themselves as Warmate’s lawyers confirmed the court’s verdict on Twitter.


”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,” Nelson said.
