The senator who reported himself to the police command following invitation is being detained pending the completion of investigations on the alleged assault.
The FCT Police Commissioner, Mr. Bala Ciroma, confirmed this to Channels Television, via a telephone interview.
In a video which has gone virile, Abbo. who represents Adamawa North Senatorial District could be seen in an adult toy shop hitting a woman after she pleaded with him not to physically assault the shop owner whom he accused of insulting him.
