The House of Representatives has postponed the ongoing sex scandal hearing of three of its lawmakers scheduled to hold on Thursday, July 14, 2016.
The postponement, it was learnt, was as a result of the absence of the Foreign Affairs Minister, Mr. Geoffery Onyeama.
In April 2016, three Nigerian lawmakers, Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom), Mohammed Gololo (APC, Bauchi) and Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue) were accused of alleged sexual misconduct while on an official assignment in Cleveland, USA.
The outgoing United States Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle had accused the trio of being guilty of sexual misconduct while on a trip with seven other Reps to the U.S. for the International Visitor Leadership Program.
Following the incident, the House of Representatives had on Tuesday, summoned Mr Entwistle to provide evidence that the accused lawmakers were indeed guilty of sexual misconduct.
Entwistle is expected to provide video clips of the incident during the public hearing.
