Reading Time: < 1 minute

A Federal Capital Territory Magistrate Court has granted bail to Senator Elisha Abbo in the sum of N5million and two sureties in like sum. The hearing on the assault case has been adjourned to July 22.

Recall that Abbo was arraigned in court over alleged assault of a nursing mother.

There are reports that Senator Abbo was earlier released due to the absence of the lady he assaulted.

After much protest from Nigerians, the Inspector General of Police, IGP Mohammed Adamu directed the Commissioner of Police in charge of FCT, CP Bala Ciroma to investigate the matter.

The investigation led to the invitation of the Senator to the Command, which further led to his detention on Thursday.

He was, however, released on Friday afternoon after meeting the bail conditions.

He was arraigned on Monday by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police at Zuba Magistrate Court, Abuja.

The Presiding Magistrate, Senior Magistrate Abdullahi Ilellah, said the sureties must have verifiable addresses within the FCT.

Ilellah then adjourned the case to July 22nd for hearing.
