The very embattled Senator who was purportedly caught on tape assaulting a nursing mother at a shop in the nation’s capital, Elisha Abbo, is currently at the Federal Capital Territory Police Command for interrogation, according to THE PUNCH.

The lawmaker who is representing Adamawa North in the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is currently undergoing interrogation by operatives at the police command.

Bala Ciroma, the Commissioner of Police for the FCT had confirmed to THE PUNCH that the young Senator was at the moment being grilled by detectives at the command.

“He is still with us,” Ciroma explained.

THE PUNCH reporter revealed that Senator Abbo had met with Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector General of Police earlier at the Headquarters of the Police Force before he then headed to be questioned at the command.

The Police IG had on Wednesday, July 3rd 2019, given a directive to the FCT Commissioner of Police to investigate the assault issue after the viral video generated a lot of backlash after hitting the internet.

The FCT CP was also directed by the IG to carry out a forensic investigation of the footage which had shown the Senator slapping the hapless lady repeatedly over what had seemed to be a minor disagreement.

The Presidential Candidate of the PDP in the 2019 General elections, Atiku Abubakar had adviced Abbo to turn himself in at the police station on Wednesday.
