Why victim of Senator Abbo’s assault shunned Senate

<p class="">Top sources say that negotiation has started between Senator Abbo and Warmate to ensure that the matter is settled out of court.</p>

<h1>Bibra Warmate, a shop attendant, who was assaulted by Senator Elisha Abbo has refused to appear before the Senate ad hoc committee.</h1>

<p class="">According to Punch, a source said that negotiation for a possible out-of-court settlement between the senator and his victim has begun.</p>

<p class="">Meanwhile, the Chairman of senate ad committee that was set up to look into the incident, <strong>Senator</strong> <strong>Sam Egwu</strong> said earlier that both the owner of the shop and the victim refused to appear before the committee.</p>

<p class="">When contacted to explain why she failed to appear before the Senate Committee, Warmate directed Punch correspondent to a spokesperson.</p>

<p class="">When the spokesperson was called, a lady who identified herself as Warmste’s lawyer said: <em>“I can categorically tell you that there is no such negotiation and that the matter is in court. We have an action against him (Abbo) in court. We are suing him.”</em></p>

<p class="">However, top sources claimed that negotiation is ongoing between Senator Abbo and Warmate to ensure that the matter is settled out of court.</p>

<p class=""><strong>Pulse</strong> understands that efforts to reach Abbo proved abortive as his line was switched off.</p>

<p class="">Meanwhile, due to the failure of the alleged victim to appear before Senate,  the ad hoc committee has<a href="https://www.pulse.ng/news/local/senate-panel-seeks-more-time-to-investigate-sen-abbo/q20268y" id="c710fab4-336b-4c34-811a-121a5079939c" data-link-role-code="none"> requested for more time to complete its assignment</a> on the case.</p>

<p class="">Chairman of the panel, Sen. <strong>Sam Egwu</strong> (Ebonyi- PDP), made the request at Wednesday’s plenary, relying on Order 43 of the Senate.</p>

<p class="">He particularly said additional time would enable his committee gather more information to diligently do the investigation and report back to the Senate.</p>

<p class="">He, however, decried the refusal of some of those who appeared before the panel to furnish it with needed information, on the fear of prejudice of the Court.</p>
