The Police have brought Senator Elisha Abbo to the Zuba Magistrates’ Court, Abuja, for arraignment for assault. The lawmaker is expected to be arraigned on one-count charge of assault today.
The police filed criminal charge against Abbo for assaulting a nursing mother at an adult sex toy shop in Abuja earlier this year.
The Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory Police Command, Bala Ciroma, confirmed that Abbo had been taken to the court.
He said, “They (police officers) have taken him to the Zuba Magistrate court for arraignment. They are on their way now.”
It was gathered that Police detectives had established a prima facie case against the People’s Democratic Party lawmaker representing Adamawa North Senatorial District in National Assembly.
The Federal Capital Territory Police Command had interrogated the lawmaker last Thursday and subsequently detained him for less 24 hours.
