Senator Elisha Abbo has been arraigned before Zuba Magistrate Court in Abuja for assaulting a nursing mother at a sex toy shop earlier in May this year.
The Punch reported that, Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory Command, Bala Ciroma, confirmed that Mr Abbo has been taken to court for arraignment.
The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) lawmaker who represents Adamawa North in the National Assembly, had apologised for his actions in a press briefing last week.
Reports says the viral video of the incident which sparked outrage and his statement owning up to the incident would be used as evidence against him.
A women’s group, National Council for Women Society (NCWS), FCT Chapter, had on Sunday rejected his apology.
The group advocated for stiffer punishment for Abbo to serve as deterrent to others who assault women in workplaces, shops and markets.
It also called on the United Nations and other international organisations to ensure Abbo’s prosecution in order to guard against future occurrence.
