The representative of Adamawa North Senatorial District, Elisha Abbo, who molested a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja, has been released on bail by the Federal Capital Territory Police Command.
Abbo was released on Friday morning after being detained overnight.
Senator Abbo, who had earlier tendered an unreserved apology to Nigerians and his victim over the “horrible” event, on Thursday evening presented himself to the Police for investigation into the incident.
However, PRNigeria authoritatively learnt that the first-time senator was not just granted bail after answering questions asked by Police, it was due to the fact that the lady he physically assaulted was not around to testify and give her own side of the story.
A police source said the victim travelled out of Abuja to attend a burial ceremony of a close family relation.
