The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, had in a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, accused three members of the lower chamber of improper conduct, attempted rape and soliciting for prostitutes while on official trip to the U.S.

The three lawmakers namely; Mohammed Garba Gololo, Samuel Ikon and Mark Gbillah were accused of soliciting for sex and attempted rape.

Spokesman of the House, Abdulrazak Namdas who confirmed the receipt of a letter from Mr Entwistle to the Speaker said the leadership of the House has begun investigating the matter adding that the outcome would be made known in due time.

"We are in receipt of a letter from the ambassador from the United States to Nigeria where he alleged that there was misconduct by some members of the National Assembly that attended a programme.
