Senator Elisha Abbo is currently in Police over the assault on a nursing mother at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
Reports say he has been in custody for more than four hours but has not been detained.
Senator Abbo voluntarily surrendered himself for interrogation following an invitation from the Commissioner of Police of the FCT CP Bala Ciroma.
Recall that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu on Wednesday ordered a comprehensive investigation of the assault of a nursing mother by Senator Abbo at an adult toy store in Abuja.
Speaking with TVC news on phone, the FCT police commissioner Bala Ciroma says the senator will only be charged when investigation is concluded. And that would include getting witness testimony. But while that is ongoing, the Police Commissioner explains that the senator is entitled to bail.
Although the senator apologised,the IGP directed the FCT Police Commissioner to provide a personal supervision of of the investigation.
Abbo who represents Adamawa North Senatorial District was spotted in an adult toy shop in a video exclusively released by Premium Times on Monday.
He was seen hitting a woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom he accused of insulting him.
The viral video immediately sparked outrage with many Nigerians calling for his prosecution and urging the Senate to also discipline him.
