The United States Government has withdrawn the visa of three Nigerian Senators. The three members of the House of Representatives were accused of sexual misconduct while on an official trip to the United States back in April. The lawmakers fingered in the case are Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom), Mohammed Gololo (APC, Bauchi) and Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue).
The US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle signed a petition and sent to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara. In the petition, it was 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.
However, the Speaker of the House of Representatives has set up a panel to investigate the case.
