The Senator representing Adamawa North, Elisha Abbo, has been reportedly granted bail by the Police.

Abba was arrested after being caught assaulting a woman on camera.

Abuja police commissioner Bala Ciroma stated that Abbo was allowed to go home around noon on Friday after meeting a set of administrative conditions for his bound.

The senator was arrested and detained overnight after turning himself into the police for alleged assault on a woman at a sex toy shop.

The senator owned up to the violence, which occurred in May, and issued an apology at a press briefing Wednesday night.

Mr Ciroma declined to give specific terms of the bail but a police source said they were “stringent enough to secure his return to the investigators as may be necessary” in the course of the preliminary probe.

It was also learnt that Mr Abbo was released because the victim of the assault had travelled out of Abuja to attend the burial of a deceased family member.

Another police source said it was not immediately clear when Mr Abbo would be charged to court because preliminary findings were not sufficient to file charges.

The source said both the victim’s testimony and forensic analysis of the video would be necessary as part of the investigation.

“We need to do a forensic analysis of the CCTV footage that is in circulation, but this may take about a week or two to conclude,” the police source said.

The police began their investigation following an order by Inspector-General Mohammed Adamu on Wednesday. Some commentators, however, argued that the published video was sufficient for the police to file criminal charges against Mr Abbo and arraigned him in court.

Separate investigations by the Nigerian Senate and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had also been initiated into the assault allegations.
