Alleged sexual misconduct: US Ambassador fails to honor House of Reps investigating panel again

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 again stalled today as the outgoing US Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle failed to honor the panel's invitation.

The US Envoy who wrote a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives accusing the three lawmakers of sexual misconduct, was expected to appear before the joint panel to provide video evidence for the alleged crime. He was supposed to appear last week Thursday July 14th but failed to honor the panel's invitation.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who was also supposed to appear before the panel, sent in a letter explaining he had to be at the Federal Executive council which holds today.
