There was mild drama on Tuesday at the investigative hearing on the allegation of assault against Senator Elisha Abbo
The Senate had last week set up an ad-hoc Committee to investigate allegation of assault against Senator Abbo at an adult toy shop in Abuja.
The trouble started when Senator Abbo appeared before the Committee and declined to talk on the matter claiming that the case is before the court of law.
He added that even if he decided to talk on the mater he will prefer a closed door session.
The lawmakers however replied Senator Abbo that he can not dictate for the Committee.

Senator Abbo’s reaction infuriated members of the Committee, who informed him of the consequence of his action.
Earlier, the Counsel to the Victim of the assault appeared before the senate committee informing the Panel that the Victim is in the hospital, and that they don’t know when she will be discharged.
The Counsel declined to make any statement on the assault case, stating that it would amount to subjudice, as the matter is in court.
