Senator Elisha Abbo, the Adawama born lawmaker is allegedly in an out-of-court settlement negotiation with the lady he assaulted, as confirmed by insiders.

We reported yesterday that Bibra Warmate, the shop attendant and nursing mother assaulted by Senator Elisha Abbo in the viral video failed to appear before the Senate ad hoc committee investigating the incident. When contacted by Punch, she also failed to give her reason for being absent.

Though top sources claimed that an out-of-court settlement negotiation is ongoing between Senator Abbo and Warmate, her lawyer denied the claim stating that they have a lawsuit against the lawmaker and will be going ahead with it.

“I can categorically tell you that there is no such negotiation and that the matter is in court. We have an action against him (Abbo) in court. We are suing him” the lawyer said.

This is coming after Chairman of senate ad committee that was set up to look into the incident, Senator Sam Egwu, requested for more time to conclude the investigation and report back to the National Assembly.
