The investigative hearing on the allegations of sexual misconduct by some members of the House of Representatives has been postponed due to the absence of Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.

Hon. Nicholas Ossai (Delta-PDP), Chairman of the House Committee on Ethics and Privileges, conducting the investigative hearing into the scandal, had announced the postponement of the session on Thursday.

He said that the minister, who was expected to present the evidence of the U.S. Ambassador, James Entwistle, because of his diplomatic immunity to public probes, traveled out of the country.

Ossai said that the session would hold on Wednesday.

The lawmakers being investigated for allegedly soliciting sexual favours while on official assignment in the U.S. with seven other colleagues in March, 2016 are Muhammed Gololo (APC-Bauchi), Samuel Ikon (PDP-Akwa Ibom) and Mark Gbillah (APC-Benue).

      Why now? the Ambassador is leaving. Are you postponing this meeting so that he would be gone before the hearing? Please we need gist and video quick quick.

    naija feminists this is where u people are suppose to be. u people are suppose to be protesting, raising up discussions, keeping this scandal alive before it gets swept under the rug etc raising up discussions on sexual harassment and rape and soliciting for sex.
    what if this kind of thing happened to a poor nigerian maid in nigeria? who will believe her.

    but instead u feminists are more focused on who should pay on a dinner date or who should cook in a home. see ur life. smh

    I still have hope in this case cause the incident happened in america and a white man (the american ambassador) is involved. but u never know. ambassador to nigeria may have learnt how to take bribe.

      Bruno please……. Let your comment correlate sometimes. Did Nigerian feminists steal your shine? Mtchew! In the whole news, it’s only how to attack Nigerian feminists you can think of? Everyone should be outraged at this. You doing like those who say whites shouldn’t join the #blacklivesmatter movement. Why don’t you remove the log in your eyes and start the outrage? Mtchew! Always looking to make silly comments.

    See their faces, like spoilt akamu.
    Next time they won’t think with their 3rd leg.
    I know no disciplinary action wld be taken against dem afterall dis is naija. But let dem atleast me named and shamed.
    I can’t stand men dat think wit dere dicks. Groping a woman n soliciting for sex, especially on assignment is all shades of wrong.

    Say wetin? Me I must watch that film. Naijas have entered the equation, and all of a sudden, nothing is going as planned. I’m even trying to understand the explanation. Who has diplomatic immunity to public probes? Should it not be the US ambassador? Is US ambassador being probed?
