A member of the House of Representatives in Nigeria, Mark Gbillah, has called for a detailed public investigation over allegations of s*xual misconduct brought against three members of the lower chamber of the National Assembly.
Gbillah said the allegations made by the Ambassador of the United States to Nigeria, Mr James Entwistle, did not occur.
He stressed the belief that the allegations were meant to tarnish the image of the members involved and the legislative house.
He, therefore, demanded a detailed and open investigation into the matter.
Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, had since ordered an investigation into the matter, saying the allegations were not conclusive enough to decide that anyone is guilty.
The House has also mandated a joint Committee of ethics and Foreign Affairs to investigate the matter and report back to the House.
Their report is expected to guide the House on the position it will take on the matter.
