Senator Elisha Abbo has allegedly dragged Nurudeen Kama, a former aide to former Adamawa State Governor Jibrilla Bindow, to court over a Facebook post he claimed was aimed at defaming him.
Nurudeen Kama took to his Facebook post to point out why Senator Abbo representing Adamawa North Senatorial District shouldn’t be compared to Tafawa Balewa (Nigeria’s first Prime Minister). In the post, Kama implied that Senator Abbo was a drunk, a drug addict that molests women, gay, bisexual, an idiot and a HIV patient deliberately transmitting HIV to women.
Following his arrest last week, Kama who was charged to court on Monday August 19, was accused of using derogatory words to tarnish the image of the Adamawa-born lawmaker before members of the public.
The defendant who was granted bail in the sum of N500,000 after he pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charges against him, is expected to produce two sureties – a blood relative and a traditional ruler in his community. The Nation reported that he also signed an undertaking not to tamper with ongoing investigations into the matter.

The case was adjourned until September 9, 2019.
