See Full Details of What DSS Did to Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has denied that he was arrested, detained and granted administrative bail by the Department of State Services (DSS), after nine hours of interrogation.
Speaking to newsmen, Oshiomhole though stated that he was truly interrogated by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) over the APC primaries before he left the country.
He said he “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention”.
“The conversation centred around APC primaries. The question now is whether or not it is the DSS job to interfere in a political party’s issues. And if there’s an allegation of corruption, it is the responsibility of EFCC and ICPC.”
Oshiomhole dismissed the rumour that DSS rescheduled another meeting with him.
Similarly, the APC chairman said he was not released on administrative bail, adding that Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, did not come to pick him up from the DSS office. “I was the one who called Yahaya Bello and he came but I drove home in my own car.”
“I was the one who called Yahaya Bello and he came but I drove home in my own car.”
Reacting on the Peoples Democratic Party’s call for his arrest, Oshiomhole said, “What would they have said if it was the PDP chairman that was invited by DSS, for instance over the dollar bazaar at their Port Harcourt primary?
“They would have said democracy is under threat and would have fired a letter to the UN as they often ridicule themselves.”
