Assault: Police release Sen. Abbo on bail after victim no-show

The Senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District,  Elisha Abbo, was released on bail, Friday, by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command.

Embattled Senator Abbo, who was caught on camera assaulting a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja, had earlier tendered an apology to Nigerians and his victim, Babra, over the incident.

He presented himself to the Police for investigation on Thursday.

It was however, gathered that the senator was granted bail following the absence of the victim.

The victim was expected to testify and give her own side of the story after the incident but had travelled out of Abuja to attend a burial ceremony of a close family relation.

The Police are expected to resume their probe once the lady returns.
