Criminal Assault: More Trouble For Sen. Abbo As Police Tender Additional CCTV Footage Evidence.||Anyigbaleft

ABUJA – The Nigeria Police have tendered additional CCTV footage of the alleged assault by Senator Elisha Abbo on a nursing woman in a sex toy shop before a Zuba Magistrate’s Court in Abuja.

The senator representing Adamawa-North Senatorial District on the platform of the People’sDemocraticParty (PDP) was charged on July 8 for criminal assault, contrary to Section 263 and 264 of Penal Code.

At the resumed hearing of the case on Thursday, the prosecution counsel, James Idachaba, who had opened his case at the last adjourned date, told the court that they have stumbled on additional proof of evidence, of a closed-circuit television video that captured the incident.

Idachaba, who had called in second prosecution witness, Investigation Police Officer (IPO) to present the CCTV evidence, however, could do not do so following the application for adjournment made by the defence counsel, Adegbite Adeniyi.

Adeniyi argued that he would need more time to enable him study and watch the content of the video as he was just being served in the court.
He said: “The law gives us right to be given time to go through such proof of evidence before the case can continue.”
