Justice Delayed: Again Court Adjourns Senator Abbo Assault Case
A magistrate court sitting in Zuba, Abuja, has on Monday, once again, adjourned the commencement of the trial against Senator Elisha Abbo who is facing trial on assault.
The presiding Magistrate, Abdullahi Ilellah directed the Nigerian police to make available their evidences to be used in the commencement of the trial on 20 August.
Magistrate Ilellah, while giving the order, warned the police that he would not entertain any application for adjournment.
He also directed the prosecution to speed up the investigation and serve the defendant all necessary materials.
The matter was adjourned until 20 August to begin the trial.
Abbo was arraigned on July 8 on a two-count charge which bordered on assault of a nursing woman at a sex toy shop in Abuja, an offence punishable under section 263 and 264 of penal code law.
