The FCT Police Command has detained Senator Elisha Abbo for allegedly assaulting a nursing mother at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
In a telephone interview, the FCT Police Commissioner, Mr Bala Ciroma, confirmed to Channels Television that the Senator is being detained to enable detectives complete investigation on the alleged assault.
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.
