A 12-member committee of the House of Representatives who is investigating the Bauchi State Assembly crisis has concluded its assignment.

Recall that the assembly was recently rocked by power tussle leading to the emergence of 2 parallel Speakers, a situation that compelled the federal lawmakers to wade in.

Addressing newsmen at the Assembly complex, the committee members, headed by Musa Sarkin Adar, said 28 memoranda and oral testimonies were received during the investigation.

According to him, the petitioners cooperated with the panel, adding that the aggrieved members answered all questions asked.

Testifying before the panel, the state’s Commissioner of Police Habu Sani-Ahmadu and his deputy, Mohammed Yakubu absolved the command of any complicity in the crisis.

Meanwhile, the 12-man committee, which began collation of complaints from aggrieved lawmakers and critical stakeholders on Monday, has since returned to Abuja to submit its report to the National Assembly.
