However, Mr. Adegbite Adeniyi, Counsel to Abbo, told the court that his client was sick.
”My Lord my client is suffering from Acute Febrile (a medical term used to describe a sudden fever or elevation in body temperature)”, he said.A
Adeniyi, who presented a medical report to the court, added that Abbo was on admission in a hospital in Yola, Adamawa State.
He told the court that his client’s surety was in court.
He explained that the prosecution served him with the proof of evidence in the morning in court.
Adeniyi prayed the court to grant him an adjournment to put his house in other.
However, the prosecution did not oppose the oral application made by Abbo’s counsel.
The Magistrate, Abdullahi Ilelah, adjourned the case until September 24 for hearing.
The Senator, who represents Adamawa North Senatorial Zone was arraigned on July 8 for allegedly assaulting a nursing mother, Mrs Warmate Osimibibra
