June 17, 2016 – Nigerian Politician Attempts To Rape Hotel Cleaner In Cleveland Ohio US As 2 Lawmakers Ask For Prostitutes

The Chairman House of Representatives Committee on Media and Publicity, Abdulrazak Namdas, has disclosed that the House will investigate allegations that three of its members were involved in sexual offences while on a trip to the United States for a leadership programme.

US Ambassador, James Enwistle, in a letter dated June 9, 2016, addressed to Speaker Yakubu Dogara, alleged that three members, namely, Mohammed Garba Gololo (APC, Bauchi), Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom) and Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue) had, on a recent visit to the United States for the International Visitor Leadership Programme, been involved in sexual misconduct.

According to the envoy, Gbillah and Ikon asked a staff of the hotel they were lodged in to engage prostitutes on their behalf and Gololo attempted to rape a housekeeper.

Speaking at the weekly briefing of the Media and Publicity Committee, Namdas said the leadership of the House is committed to investigating the allegations.
However, he was not forthcoming on the procedure to be adopted in investigating the lawmakers.

“As a responsible parliament, the leadership of the House, having received the letter from the Ambassador of the United States of America to Nigeria is conducting its own investigation.

“As it stands, it is still an allegation. We have our own rules. We have our own laws as a country. Once investigations are concluded, we will further brief you on the matter,” he stated.

Also Gbillah and Ikon in separate statements yesterday, denied any wrong doing, saying they have commenced the process of clearing their names.
Ten lawmakers were invited by the US government for the International Visitor Leadership Programme held between April 7 and 13, 2016, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Entwistle’s letter read in part: “It is with regret that I must bring to your attention the following situation.

“Ten members of the Nigerian National Assembly recently travelled to Cleveland, Ohio as participants in the International Visitor Leadership Programme on good governance.
“We received troubling allegations regarding the behaviour of three members of the delegation to the US Government’s flagship professional exchange programme…”

“The US Department of State and the Cleveland Council on World Affairs received reports from employees of the Cleveland hotel where the representatives stayed, alleging the representatives engaged in the following behaviour: Mohammed Garba Gololo allegedly grabbed a housekeeper in his hotel room and solicited her for sex.

“While the housekeeper reported this to her management, the incident could have involved local law enforcement and resulted in legal consequences for Representative Gololo.

“Mark Terseer Gbillah and Samuel Ikon allegedly requested hotel parking attendants to assist them to solicit prostitutes.”

  1. The outside world exploit every opportunity they are given to tarnish the already tarnished image of Nigeria, and Nigerians seem clueless as to how to cease providing them with such dirty occasions

  2. See stupid rotten so called leaders! How dumb? Do you fools think you were in Nigeria where anything goes? Was that what they sent you guys to go represent?

    The allegations cannot be falsified it could be true judging from their corrupt ladden looking face. Bad eggs dragging our pride in the mud by some Holigans called Honourables.

    I take a stroll…

  3. They should be investigated and remove as a lawmaker if found guilty…useless politicians

  4. Just how long was the trip expected to be that not one but THREE people had to have such unthinkable allegations level led against them?
    Maybe this incident will make Nigerians advise themselves on how to behave abroad. It is so embarrassing.

  5. well we don’t know if this are true, but if it is true then this men must be investigate and bring to justice, USA is not Africa where such case will just go cold without justice giving. powerful men in the World has been exposed who are Nigeria politicians,

    its easy for them to pay a prostitute there than to bring disgrace to Nigeria as a country and themselves.

  6. So they have no self control, too bad. These moron are nothing but a big disgrace to their families. Old fools!

  7. Men, especially politicians with things under the skirts makes me think if sex is food. They traveled to US to live the life of teenagers. FOOLS! These type of men are very very protective of their daughters, but are always ready to spoil other people’s daughters.

  8. Nawahoo you gays can’t even control yourselves knowing fully well you are in another man’s country. Na so d thing hungry you people, is it food?

  9. They are not Fit for the position they held.@this is not a DRILL,it’s reality,they should pay for their bad behavior,it’s just a shame on them.

  10. We don’t know what actually happened, let the police finish their investigations then we can comment on that. American women have proclivity for this kind of shit!

  11. How I wish these fools are made to face sexual charges in order for them to learn their big lesson. The United States Government sent you an invite to come and learn how to better off in leadership. They know that we lack leadership skill that was why they organized that class especially for people like you. As a member of lower house you have already got your first sexual assault case. What of if you become a Vice President or President? We are the way we are because of useless people like you running the affairs of this Country. Anyway one good thing about United State is that they can let them off the hook based on diplomatic immunity but some Countries will still require these Gigolo and others to go to the prison.

  12. It shows the perverts voted into the legislative. They change ladies like boxer and unfaithful to their spouse, do they think it’s the same abroad, those in high position there are very discreet with their acts but our “woman wrapper” here have no discretion and self respect.


  14. Most of them come here just to taste what is under the skirt of white Many of them go for prostitutes. This is the truth. I witnessed one back in my school days in Arkansas. This was during Shagari regime. There was a time the senate president then and some of his colleagues came to watch the U S senate in session, could you believe they came late? and when they showed up each of them came with two women and they sat at the back and that was towards the end of the session.

  15. Dis dogs keep on bringing shame and disgrace to dis country..
    4rm d allegation there z no smoke without fire… Dey keep on messing themselves up.

  16. They are a disgrace to dis country, leaders not youths, they think they are still in naija were athrocities like dis are unquestionable, I am surprised that they are not in d gallows by now, see their head like coconut own, useless fools.
