Breaking: Senator Elisha Abbo leaves PDP for APC
Senator Elisha Abbo has defected from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
Senate President Ahmad Lawan read Abbo’s letter of defection during the plenary session on Wednesday.
Abbo noted that the alleged mismanagement of PDP in Adamawa State led to his defection to APC.
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 act.
