Take me to court – Sacked lawmaker, Abbo defends allegation against judges

Former lawmaker, Senator Elisha Abbo has challenged his critics to institute legal action against him on his claim that some judges and justices engaged in bribery during electoral litigation.

Abbo represented Adamawa North Senatorial District in the Senate before he was sacked from the parliament by the Court of Appeal.



After his sack, Abbo claimed that the election was unjustly cancelled at polling units where he won the majority of votes and accused justices of collecting a bribe to pervert the course of justice.

Reports revealed  that his bribery claim drew strong criticism from some lawyers, with some asking him to apologise for raising such a “weighty allegation” against the judicial officers or face legal action.

However, Abbo, at a press briefing on Monday in Abuja, challenged his critics to sue him, saying he has evidence to back up his bribery claim.

“Take me to court. If you don’t, I will sue you for libel. I’m not afraid of going to court. I can’t be intimidated. I’m known for being bold, brave, and standing up to speak the truth,” he said.

Abbo said while he’s awaiting action on his petition to the National Judicial Council against some justices, he had petitioned the United States, United Kingdom, and the European Union seeking visa ban on corrupt justices.

According to him, “the war against corruption in Nigeria must be taken to the judiciary where some judges and justices are carrying out judicial banditry or coup against democracy through unjustifiable nullification of elections of people validly voted for by the Nigerian electorate.

“Such judicial banditry must be fought in and outside the country by calling for a visa ban on the affected judges and justices, and even revocation of visas of their family members already resident abroad.”
