 The Zuba Chief Magistrates’ court has adjourned Senator Elisha Abbo’s assault trial till February 6.

Senator Abbo was dragged to court for allegedly assaulting a nursing mother, Mrs. Warmate Osimibibra in an Abuja sex shop, having slapped the complainant several times on her face and forcefully dragging her shirt.

At the resumed hearing, the police counsel, James Idachaba, and the defendant, Senator Abbo were not in court.

However, one Philip Tumba from the legal department of the FCT Police command told the court that, the prosecution counsel was attending a meeting with the Inspector-General of Police.

Tumba also said there was a letter of adjournment from the police which was filed at the court registry yesterday (Wednesday) but not served on the defence.

Similarly, the defense counsel Mr. Isaac Adeniyi apologised for the absence of the defendant adding that he had health challenges.

Adeniyi, who did not object to the prosecution’s request for adjournment, said the dates suggested by the prosecution were not convenient to him.

In his ruling, the Presiding Magistrate Abdullahi Illelah adjourned the matter until February 6 for the continuation of trial.
