Senator Elisha Abbo's Sex Toy Shop Assault Case Compounded As Police Tender More Proof

The Nigerian police have tendered additional CCTV footage of the alleged assault by Senator Elisha Abbo on a nursing woman in a sex toy
shop before a Zuba magistrate's court in Abuja.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Thursday the prosecution counsel, James Idachaba, who had opened his case at the last adjourned
date told the court that they stumbled on additional proof of evidence of the closed-circuit television that captured the incident.

The second prosecution witness, investigation police officer, who was in court to testify in the case could do not do so as defence counsel
Adegbite Adeniyi made an application for the adjournment of the case.

Adeniyi argued that he would need to apply for more time to enable him to watch the content of the video as he was just served in the court.

He said, "The law gives us the right to be given time to go through such proof of evidence before the case can continue."

The defence counsel said his client was ready for defence but the
additional evidence had hindered their preparation.

The prosecution counsel did not object to the application for adjournment by the defence. He said it was their right to ask for time
to study the electronically generated evidence in line with the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA).

The presiding magistrate, Abdullahi Ilellah, therefore, adjourned the case until 19 November.

Abbo, representing Adamawa North Senatorial District, is a People's Democratic Party's legislator.

He admitted on July 3 that he was the one in the video and apologized to the woman assaulted.

He was charged on July 8 for criminal force and assault which is contrary to section 263 and 264 of penal code law.

Kumuyi made the declaration via a satellite broadcast from headquarters of the church in Lagos, while teaching on the topic, ‘Fear Not: The Promise Is Still Good’ during the Faith Clinic session at the ongoing Deeper Life National December Retreat, holding at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC), which started on Friday, December 21 and ends December 25.

He said the church will not condone any form of rascality and rebellion because the word of God never encourages that and is a strange behaviour capable of taking one to hell fire.

He said: “We are not going to hand the church over to rascals, over to rebellious people that want to scatter everything that is good that the Lord is doing. If you …
