The federal capital territory police command has granted bail to Elisha Abbo, senator representing Adamawa north.

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

The senator had honoured police invitation over the assault of a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja.

He turned himself at the headquarters of the FCT police command on Thursday evening.

The senator has been under fire since a video where he was seen hitting an attendant repeatedly at a sex toy shop in Abuja went viral.

The video had sparked outrage, with many Nigerians calling for the prosecution of the lawmaker. Subsequently, Mohammed Adamu, inspector general of police, had ordered that a comprehensive investigation be carried out on the incident.

Ciroma did not disclose the specific terms of the bail but a police source was quoted 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 said.
