Senate Sets Up Ad-hoc Committee to Probe Senator Abbo Over Assault


Nigerian Senate on Wednesday, has set up a bi-partisan ad hoc committee headed by a former governor of Ebonyi State, Sam Egwu, to probe the assault on a nursing mother by Senator Elisha Abbo.

The embattled senator was seen in a viral video to be physically assaulting a lady in a sex toy shop in Abuja earlier this year.

Reacting to the news, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan constituted a panel to probe into the case as suggested by the Senator representing Kaduna Central, Uba Sani.

The President said concerned Nigerians in and outside the country has requested for what transpired from the Senate.

He further said it would be unfair on either the Senator or the assaulted lady if the Senate should pass a judgment immediately based on the viral video clip.

He, therefore, asked the ad hoc committee to probe the issue critically by inviting both parties and submit its report within two weeks.
