Adjourn

The Nigerian Police has closed its case in the trial of Senator Elisha Abbo.

Senator Abbo who was charged to court on July 8 for criminal force and assault on a nursing mother is facing trial at the Magistrate Court in Zuba, Abuja.

The offence for which Abbo is charged  is contrary to section 263 and 264 of penal code law.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Thursday, prosecutor James Idachaba told the court that he was closing his case against the defendant after calling two witnesses.

The two witnesses were the nominal complainant, Anyata Warmate, and Mary Daniel, an assistant superintendent with the Nigerian Police, who investigated the case.

Responding, Abbo’s lawyer, Isaac Adeniyi, said the police has not been able to establish a prima facie case against his client.

He then asked for an adjournment to enable them file a no-case submission in the matter.

Chief Magistrate Abdullahi Ilelah adjourned the matter to March 12 for the adoption of a no-case submission to be filed by the lawmaker.

Recall that Senator Abbo appeared in a viral video in July 2019, in which he was  seen assaulting a nursing mother who tried to defend attendant Ms Warmate at Pleasure Chest Shop, FA45, Banex Plaza, a sex toy shop in Abuja
