US govt cancels visas of 3 Nigerian lawmakers accused of sexual misconduct in Cleveland

cleve

The United States 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), alleged of sexual misbehavior while on an official duty in Cleveland, USA in April this year.

In a petition written by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, which was equally forwarded to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, the US government alleged that while the lawmakers stayed 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 assist them with sex workers.

To make them pay for their gross misconducts, the US government has cancelled their visa which has automatically barred 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 to look into the case.
