Minister applauds judgement sentencing Sen. Abbo

The Minister of Women Affairs, Dame Pauline Tallen has commended the Nigerian judiciary for sentencing Senator Elisha Abbo representing Adamawa North Senatorial district for assaulting Ms Osimibibra Warmate in 2019.

The Minister stated this in a press statement following the judgement of the Abuja high court delivered on Monday 28 September sentencing the senator to a fine of 50 million naira for assaulting the woman.

The statement added that the judgement will serve as a deterrent to other male chauvinists, be they in high or low places, who take pleasure in harassing and maltreating Women.

The statement further adds that the Ministry of Women Affairs and other stakeholders are determined as ever to take all necessary steps to checkmate all incidences of Gender based violence.
