This comes after the three accused members claimed that they were being racially discriminated against by the US Ambassador. They added that the allegations were a plot to smear the image of the country.

The three members have also now alleged that the failure of Entwistle to appear before the House as well as the continuous postponements are signs of denial.

News24 Nigeria reported that the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria submitted complaints about the behavior of Mark Gbillah and two colleagues, Samuel Ikon and Mohammed Garba Gololo, to the House of Representatives.

A prior meeting between the House of Representatives and Entwistle, over the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against three members of the House was postponed.

Entwistle was to provide the video evidence of  the sexual misconduct against three  lawmakers but failed to show, leading to the postponement.
