Senator Elisha Abbo, a Senator caught assaulting a woman in a sex toy shop, has been honoured with a ‘Beacon of Hope’ award at the 4th edition of the Adamawa Celebrities and Achievers Awards (ACAA).
Abbo, representing Adamawa North at the red chamber, is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The senator was presented the award at the event that took place in Yola, Adamawa State on Saturday.
In May 11 Senator Abbo assaulted a woman in Abuja. The incident occurred barely three months after he became a senator-elect and a month before he was sworn in on June 11.

Footage of the video showed the 41-year-old senator physically assaulting the woman, whom he accused of insulting him by calling him “a drunk”. A policeman, who stood by did nothing to protect the victim.
In July, Abbo had been honoured with ‘ICON of Democracy’ award by the Intercommunity Awareness for Change and Development Initiative (IACDI), weeks after the incident happened.
The lawmaker later owned up to his actions by issuing an apology on the screen amidst tears.
He, however turned himself in to the police before granting him bail “after meeting a set of administrative conditions for his bound”.
The Abuja police command is yet to give the specific terms of the bail.
