Alleged sexual misconduct: House of Reps investigation stalled as US Ambassador, Min. of Foreign Affairs fail to appear

The investigation by the House of Representatives  joint committee on ethics and privileges and foreign affairs into the alleged sexual misconduct by three lawmakers, Samuel Ikon, Mohammed Gololo and Mark Gbillah, in the US in April this year, was today stalled as the immediate past US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle or any official from the US Embassy failed to honor the panel's invitation.

Also absent at the public hearing was the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama who was also invited.

The panel had summoned the US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, to appear before it so he can give concrete evidence to the alleged acts of sexual misconduct he accused the three lawmakers of committing while they were on an official assignment in Cleveland USA in April.
