House of Rep. member accused of rape denies allegations, threatens to sue the US govt for 'character assasination'

Few hours ago,we reported that the U.S. ambassador accused three Nigerian lawmakers of rape and also soliciting prostitutes . Now, Hon. Mohammed Garba Gololo who is one of the three Nigerian lawmakers accused by yhe US ambassador, while on a visit to the states on official assignment has denied the allegations and threatened to sue the US government for character assassination.

 Ten lawmakers were invited to the International Visitor Leadership Program held between 7-13 April  in Cleveland, Ohio, and three of them, from Bauchi, Akwa Ibom and Benue state, were accused of gross misconduct.

In the petition, Ambassador James Entwistle said the Department of State had reports from employees of the Cleveland hotel that lawmaker Muhammed Gololo had allegedly grabbed a housekeeper in his hotel room and solicited her for sex.

Two other lawmakers allegedly requested hotel parking attendants to assist them to solicit prostitutes. The housekeeper and attendants filed a complaint at the US Mission who investigated the allegations. 

In a response to the speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Gololo dismissed the allegation as "totally false, baseless and unfounded".

"I categorically deny that any such incident happened," he said.
Mr Goloo said he was demanding an apology from the US government over the allegations or would take legal action to clear his name.
