Senator Elisha Abbo (the senator that abused a pregnant woman in a sex toy shop) has announced his defection from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Senator Abbor who is representing Adamawa North in the Senate announced his defection in a letter addressed to the House of Assembly.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan read the letter to the house during today’s (Wednesday’s) plenary session.
In the letter, Senator Abbo stated that his defection to the All Progressive Congress is because of the mismanagement of the PDP Governor in Adamawa state Gov. Umaru Fintiri.
Senator Abbo has been in the news for assaulting a woman in an adult toy shop in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting in Maitama, earlier in September, awarded N50 million damages against Senator Abbo, to be paid as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate, a female attendant at a sex-toy shop, whom he assaulted.
Justice Samira Bature gave the order in her judgment on the fundamental rights enforcement suit instituted by Warmate against the senator.
Earlier on July 3, 2019, the lawmaker was caught on camera physically assaulting a woman in Abuja, two months after he allegedly committed the assault.
