House summons Spanish Ambassador over visa denial to Nigerian Athletes

The House of Reps yesterday Wednesday July 11th invited the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr Alvaro Castillo Aguilar (pictured above), to explain why their embassy denied visas to the Nigerian Contingent to the IAAF Junior championship.
The 24-man team was billed to participate in the International Association of Athletics Federations championship which commenced on Tuesday July 10th in Barcelona Spain, but couldn't make it because the Spanish embassy denied the delegation visa to the country. They later gave a flimsy excuse. *hiss*

The House has mandated its Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs and Sports to investigate the matter and submit a report.
