Senator Elisha Abbo has been granted bail after spending the night in police custody, Igbere TV reports.
Abbo, on Thursday, surrendered himself to the Federal Capital Territory
Police (FCT) Command for questioning over assault on a nursing mother.
lawmaker representing Adamawa North Senatorial District had come under
backlash following the release of a video showing how he assaulted the
lady at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
FCT police commissioner,
Bala Ciroma, told newsmen that Abbo was released at noon on Friday after
meeting a set of administrative conditions for his bail.
Mr Ciroma did not name the bail conditions which the senator met.
embattled legislator had wept and apologised to the woman on Wednesday
during a press briefing he organised to address matters over the video.
It was gathered that the assault victim was out of Abuja to attend the funeral of a deceased relative.
It is not clear if Abbo would be charged to court afterwards.
