A Magistrates’ Court sitting in Zuba, Abuja on Tuesday admitted two discs from a CCTV footage and Certificate of Compliance as evidence in the trial of Sen. Elisha Abbo.
The police charged Abbo on July 8 for criminal force and assault which is contrary to section 263 and 264 of penal code law.
Magistrate Abdullahi Illelah held that the documents tendered were relevant and admissible in evidence.
”It is left to the court to determine if a particular document or exhibit tendered before it complies with requirement of the law or not.
”The court hereby admits the statements of Sen. Elisha Abbo and medical report which the nominal complainant obtained from Mega EyeSight as exhibits in the trial,” he held.
Illelah adjourned the matter until Jan. 9, 2020 for the continuation of hearing while the bail granted to Abbo continues on the same terms and conditions.
Earlier, the prosecution witness, Mr James Idachaba tendered the exhibits through the second prosecution witness ASP Mary Daniel.
