A Magistrate Court in Zuba, Abuja has acquitted Adamawa-North lawmaker Senator Elisha Abbo of assault instituted against him by the police.
Abbo was filmed assaulting a woman Osimibibra Warmate at an adult toy shop on May 11, 2019.
Magistrate Abdullahi Ilelah who upheld a no-case submission filed by Abbo said the police failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the lawmaker assaulted Warmate, a copy of the judgment obtained by PUNCH on Friday said.
Warmate and a police officer Mary Daniel, who investigated the matter, had testified against Abbo.
