The Senate Ad hoc committee which is investigating the alleged misconduct of Senator Elisha Abbo has said that the victim slapped by the lawmaker in a viral video did not honour its invitation.
The Chairman of the panel,  Senator Sam Egwu, who stated this at plenary on Wednesday, said all efforts to make both the assaulted lady and the shop owner appear before the committee did not succeed.
The former Governor of Ebonyi State said the embattled Senator refused to make submissions before the ad hoc panel because he said doing so would be subjudice.
He also said both the Commissioner of Police in charge of FCT and the lawyers to the victims also refused to make submissions, citing the same reasons.
Egwu, therefore, requested that the matter be stepped down pending the determination of the criminal case instituted against Abbo by the police.
The President of the Senate,  Ahmad Lawan,  who presided over the plenary,  disagreed with Egwu stressing that the panel could go ahead with its work notwithstanding the court case.
Lawan said what the Senate was investigating was the alleged misconduct of its member and not the criminal case against him which is already being handled by the police.
Egwu, therefore, sought the permission of the leadership for appointment one-week extension to enable him to submit the report.
The Senate President granted the request.

Of course  the guy  could have already have  bought them  with few nairas.. Their dignity is for cash and they continue to blame political leaders for the decadence of the state of Nigeria.

Once beaten, twice shy. I praise the victims, if the Constituents of this Sensthug are shameless enough to openly hail the babaric action of their representative at the Red Chamber, what can they not do to complete the unending job of their stray dog.

I am beginning to think we are meant to be slaves, we are never bold, fearless courageous and stand outright for the truth
