Veteran Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde have reacted to the news of court dismissing the assault case levied against Senator Elisha Abbo.
A Magistrate Court in Zuba on the outskirts of Abuja yesterday July 31,
dismissed the case of assault against Senator Elisha Abbo.
Abbo, the lawmaker representing Adamawa-North, was seen assaulting a
woman named Osimibibra Warmate in a viral video.
Afterwards, the Nigeria Police Force instituted a case of assault against him.
The assault caused outrage after the video went viral and the lawmaker apologized to
his victim in a televised press conference.
A Magistrate Court has now dismissed the suit for lack of diligent prosecution by the police.
The Magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, who upheld a no-case submission filed by
Senator Abbo, said the police failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the
lawmaker indeed assaulted Osimibibra Warmate on May 11, 2019.
This is despite a video recording showing the assault play out and another video
showing him apologize to his victim.
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde who seems surprise at the result of the case took to
her official Twitter handle to react.
The beautiful screen diva who have not been shy in showing her displeasure on
any subject reacted to the news by tweeting: Waoh! with an emoji of a surprised man.
