The adhoc committee investigating allegations of assault against the Senator representing Adamawa north, Elisha Ishaku Abbo has requested that they be given more time to conclude their investigation.

The committee headed by Senator Sam Egwu made the request during plenary on Wednesday, stressing that since the matter is already in court, the committee is finding it difficult to extract information from all the parties involved including the police.

He therefore asked the Senate that the deadline to turn in their report be extended till the court delivers judgment on the matter.

Responding, the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, instead gave the committee one more week to submit their report, emphasising that the Senate is interested in the misconduct of any of its members.
