Senator Abbo pleads not guilty, granted N5 million bail
Senator Elisha Abbo has been granted bail of N5 million, hours after the police arraigned him in court.
The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District was arraigned on two counts of criminal assault and criminal use of force. This comes few days after viral video of the Senator assaulting a nursing mother.
Standing before the Chief Magistrate’s Court in Zuba, Senator Abbo pleaded not guilty to both charges, bypassing his admission of wrongdoing and an apology he made last Wednesday.
Mr Abbo was granted N5 million bail and was told to present two competent sureties to the court to secure his appearance in subsequent hearings on the criminal charges.
