The Senate on Wednesday, set up a bipartisan ad hoc committee headed by a former governor of Ebonyi State, Sam Egwu, to probe the alleged assault on a nursing mother by Senator Elisha Abbo.
The embattled senator is a Peoples Democratic Party member representing Adamawa North Senatorial District. He slapped a saleswoman at an adult toy shop in Abuja earlier this year.
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, constituted the panel following a point of order raised by the Senator representing Kaduna Central, Uba Sani.
The Senate Leader, Abdullahi Yahaya; Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe; and Senator Opeyemi Bamidele,  supported Sani by condemning the action of the Senator.
The President of the Senate confirmed that he had been inundated with calls from concerned Nigerians within and outside the country asking the Senate to explain what happened.
Lawan 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.
Other members of the panel are, Senators Oluremi Tinubu,  Mathew Urhoghide, Stella Oduah, Dauda Aliu Jika,  Sani Musa,  and Danladi Sankara.

Very very good move, I pray he's sacked from the Senate, if not it will be a real National disgrace, a whole Senator doing a thing like this.
Shame on Mr Elijah or whatever you call yourself.
Your down fall has just started.
