The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has given directive to investigate three members of the House over an alleged sex scandal – (they tried to rape and solicit prostitutes for sex in the United States) on Thursday.

According to a Punch report, that Mr. Abdulrazak Namdas, the Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, 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.
