APC CRSIS: 'My DSS Invitation Is Normal' - Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has described his reported detention and grilling by the operatives of the Department of State Services last week as normal.
Specifically, Oshiomhole said it was not the first time he would be a guest of the DSS, starting with his days as a labour activist.
The embattled APC chairman arrived in Lagos on Friday from his short journey to the United States of America, where he was said to have visited his wife, Iara.
Speaking in Lagos on Saturday, however, the former Edo State governor denied being arrested and detained by the DSS, hardly agreeing that he was invited by the agency.
“I went there on my own; I was not arrested. I saw the DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention,” the ruling party chairman added.
He said, “If you say I was interrogated by the DSS, you would be implying something totally different. There is nothing strange in the DSS having a chat with me.
“Let me tell you, from my days as a labour leader, when I’ve been visiting the ‘E-Department, which later became the Nigeria Security Organisation, which is now known as the DSS, there is nothing new about it.
“In fact, based on the mandate of the DSS, which is the security and peace of the nation, it has every right to have a chat with anybody in so far as that chat would be for the enhancement and peace and stability of Nigeria.”
