Senator Elisha Abbo  has pleaded not guilty on one count of assault.

He was arraigned on Monday by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) police at Zuba Magistrate Court, Abuja.

The senator representing Adamawa North Senatorial District had earlier apologised to Nigerians, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and women in general, following a viral video in which he was seen physically assaulting a lady.

Dressed in a blue attire with a pair of black shoes and native cap, the accused was brought to the court where he took his plea in the dock.

He was subsequently granted bail in the sum of N5m by Senior Magistrate Abdullahi Ilellah.
