Senator Elisha Abbo granted bail after spending a night in custody

The federal capital territory police command on Friday released Elisha Abbo, senator representing Adamawa north on bail.

Bala Ciroma, the state police commissioner, told PT that Abbo was allowed to go home around noon on Friday after meeting “a set of administrative conditions for his bail.”

Abbo had on Thursday honoured police invitation over the assault of a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja.

The police commissioner did not disclose the specific terms of the bail but a police source was quoted by the publication as saying the conditions were “stringent enough to secure his return to the investigators as may be necessary”.

Another police source reportedly said it was unclear when the senator would be charged to court because preliminary findings were not sufficient to file charges.

“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 source was quoted to have told PT.
