Accused House of Rep Samuel Ikon says he was too ill to have sex
Samuel Ikon,one of three Nigerian lawmakers caught-up in a US sex-scandal is vehemently denying the allegation.
The lawmaker, said his position in church would not let him get involved in such amoral act.Hahahahaha,that statement alone makes me take this with a pinch of salt.
He further said that he also does not have the physical strength to go on some romp
He also noted that as of the time when the acts were allegedly carried out, he was not
feeling too well
The Nigerian lawmaker wrote to the US's ambassador in Nigeria regarding the allegations against him.
Ikon whose visa has since been revoked by the US, said apart from being an elder in the church for over a decade, he does not have the physical strength for such act.
James F Entwistle, the US ambassador to Nigeria, had written to Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the house of representatives, alleging that Ikon (Akwa Ibom), Mohammed Gololo (Bauchi) and Mark Gbillah (Benue) sought illicit sex while attending the Leadership Visitor Program in the US in April.
He said Gololo grabbed a housekeeper in his hotel room and solicited for sex, while the others asked a park attendant to help procure the services of prostitutes.
But Ikon, who represents the Etinan/Nsit Ibom/Nsit Ubium constituency, said he almost did not make it to the US because he had malaria and typhoid.
Ikon promised to make the evidence available, and also wondered why the US government did not give him fair hearing before concluding that he was involved in the alleged scandal.
