Reps Member threatens to sue US govt for Defamation of character
A US ambassador has alleged that three Nigerian legislators attempted rape and patronized sex workers while on an appointment to the states but Hon. Mohammed Garba Gololo has refuted the claims and threatened to sue the US government for character assassination.
It was reported that from April 7-13, ten lawmakers were requested to be at the International Visitor Leadership Program which took place at Cleveland, Ohio, and three of them, from Bauchi, Akwa Ibom and Benue state, were accused of engaging in vulgar immorality.
According to the Ambassador James Entwistle’s petition, the Department of State were detailed by the Cleveland hotel staffers that lawmaker Muhammed Gololo had allegedly grabbed a housekeeper in his hotel room and solicited her for sex while two other lawmakers allegedly requested hotel parking attendants to arrange prostitutes.
The caretaker and hotel attendants laid the complaint at the US Mission who examined the allegations.
Responding, Mr Gololo told the speaker of the House of Representatives that the allegation were “totally false, baseless and unfounded”.
Adding, he said: “I categorically deny that any such incident happened.”
Mr Gololo said he was demanding an apology from the US government over the allegations or would take legal action to clear his name.
