Senator Elisha Abbo was arraigned at the Zuba Magistrate Court, Abuja, for assaulting a Nigerian nursing mother.

Aside the evidence deduced from the video, which showed Abbo repeatedly slapping his victim for intervening in an argument between him and the shop owner, the admission by the senator in a press statement he issued last week, was also said to have added to the bulk of evidence against him.
The Federal Capital Territory Police Command had interrogated the lawmaker last Thursday and subsequently detained him for 24 hours.
