THE Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya is to be slammed a sex harassment suit anytime he travels to the United States of America.
He is accused of allegedly going nude while trying to cajole a female (name withheld) into having sex with him.
The incident it was gathered occurred in 2013 at Hyatt Hotel, Chicago, United States of America while Igbuya was just a member of the House.
According to sources, Igbuya had gone to Chicago to represent the then Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon Victor Ochei as a special guest of honour at an award event organized by the Chicago branch of the Urhobo Progress Union on August 3, 2013.
He then invited the female to his room for a discussion and tried to forcefully have his way with her.
Recounting her ordeal, the victim said:
“I had been silent about the incident but recently, I have been hearing rumours making the round that I am being bitter towards Igbuya after he turned down my sexual advances towards him.
“I had attended the event where I received an award from UPU Chicago and at the end of the event, I went back to my room which I shared with my daughter and nephew.
“At my room that night, Igbuya sent me a total of five SMSs which I still have on my phone till date asking me to meet him for a discussion.
“Though I declined seeing him as it was already way past 12am, he called me the next morning while taking breakfast in company of my daughter and two prominent Urhobo chiefs when he called and sent me his room number to meet him.
“Not suspecting any foul play, I went to his room only to see him clad in towel and wantonly allowed the towel drop from his waist reveling his stark nudity while trying to grapple at me.
“Unfortunately for him, my body camera was on as I was going for a meeting that needed to be videoed hence I got some clips of his actions.”
Threatening to press charges against the embattled Delta speaker, she said:
“Though I waved the matter aside as him just being a horny old man, I was surprised when I started hearing rumours that he told people that I made advances towards him.
“I have already briefed my lawyers and they would be filing charges against him anytime he steps his feet in the US,” she stated.
