“I write to formally inform you Sir, the Senate and indeed Nigerians of my defection from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.

“This is as a result of the mismanagement of the PDP by Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri in Adamawa State which led to the crisis in the party that in turn led to the polarization of the party in the state (PDP and PDP).

“Today I join the APC and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhamadu Buhari to build the Nigeria of our dreams.”

KanyiDaily had reported how Senator Abbo attracted negative attention to himself after he was caught on camera beating up a nursing mother at a sex shop in Abuja in May 2019.

On September 28, 2020, a Federal Capital Territory {FCT} High Court, ordered Senator Abbo to pay N50 million as compensation to Osimibibra Warmate and tender a public apology to the lady for brutally assaulting her.

However, the lawmaker filed a notice of appeal, insisting that the sex-toy-shop incident was merely an “alleged tort of simple assault” and not torture or inhuman treatment.
