Sex Scandal in Ohio: US embassy revokes visas of three House members: Dogara orders investigation

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, on Thursday directed the investigation of three members of the House over an alleged sex scandal.
 
The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Mr. Abdulrazak Namdas, confirmed this in Abuja, saying that the leadership of the House took the action following a formal complaint made by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr. James Entwistle.
 
He said, “We are in receipt of a letter from the US Ambassador, alleging misconduct by some members of the National Assembly, who attended a training programme in the United States of America.
 
“The leaderships of the House has commenced its own part of the investigation. When it is concluded, we will brief Nigerians further on this issue.”
 
But, Namdas declined to answer questions on how the investigation would be conducted.
 
He did not say if a special committee had been constituted for the assignment or whether it would be conducted by the regular Committee on Ethics and Privileges.
 
“When we say we will conduct an investigation, we will conduct it and there will be a report,” Namdas stated.
 
The development came as the US formally withdrew its visas from the three lawmakers, an indication that they had been barred from future trips to the United States.
