Shortly after Senior Magistrate Abdullahi Ilellah granted a bail of N5 million to Senator Elisha Abbo and two sureties, he (Senator Abbo) was seen taking selfies with supporters in the courtroom.
The sureties must have verifiable addresses within the Federal Capital Territory. The case has since been adjourned to July 22nd.
Senator Abbo was arraigned on Monday on a one-count of assault which he pleaded not guilty.
It will be recollected that the senator openly admitted he assaulted the victim on July 2, 2019. The viral video of the assault sparked outrage with many Nigerians calling for his prosecution.
Abbo has since confirmed to Channels Television that he is indeed the man in the video and that he will release a statement soon in that regard.
