The federal high court in Abuja has awarded N50 million in favour of the woman assaulted by Senator Elisha Abbo.
Abbo had in 2019 slapped one Osimibibra Warmate repeatedly during a misunderstanding at a sex toy store in Abuja.
A video of the incident which went viral caused public uproar with many calling for his sack in the senate.
The judgement is coming months after a magistrate court dismissed the charges against Abbo for lack of evidence.
It also comes after Osimibibra Warmate initiated a civil claim for damages.
