PHOTOS: US Government Cancels Visas Of 3 Offending Nigerian Lawmakers

LAWMAKERS-REPS-SCANDALThe US government has cancelled the visas of the three house of Representatives members, Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom), Mohammed Gololo (APC, Bauchi) and Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue), (all pictured above), accused of alleged sexual misconduct while on an official assignment in Cleveland, USA in April this year.

In a petition written by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, and sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the US government alleged that while the lawmakers lodged at a Cleveland Hotel to attend the International Visitors Leadership Program, Honorable Gololo grabbed the housekeeper of the hotel they lodged in and solicited for sex while the other two lawmakers asked the hotel parking lot attendants to help them get prostitutes.

As punishments for their misconducts, the US government has cancelled their visa, barring them from entering the US. The lawmakers have denied the allegations. One of them, Gololo has even threatened to sue the US government.

Meanwhile the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has set up a panel of enquiry into the matter.
