SENATOR ELISHA ABBO: Witness Contradicts Self In Court.

Senator Abbo.

It was another drama at the Zuba Magistrate Court on Tuesday at the resumed hearing
of the criminal case of assault against Senator Elisha Abbo, Senator representing Adamawa North in the Nigerian senate, as a star witness to his case called by the prosecution contradicted herself many times under cross examination.


The witness PW1 Warmate Osimibibra, who claimed to have a shop in the complex where the sex toy shop is located, admitted that not all that happened on that day is in the statement she gave to the police. When further cross examined she admitted that not all that happened in the sex toy shop was contained in the video given to the police as some things have been removed.

It was also confirmed by the court that the witness is not a nursing mother as has been publicized and her child was twelve years old

Counsel to defendant, Adegbite Adeniyi said it was obvious someone is trying to make up something in the case, as the Deputy Commissioner of Police, James Idachaba, who is prosecuting the case on behalf of the commissioner of police, said every witness is obliged to state their evidence without being forced or coerced.

Idachaba further said he will call two more witnesses in the matter to prove the case of assault against the lawmaker and the matter has been adjourned to 17th October, 2019.
