APC Denies Knowledge Of DSS Interrogating Oshiomhole
An online medium, (Not Bounce News) had reported early on Wednesday that the Department of State Services, DSS invited and questioned National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole on Wednesday.
The focus of the questions was over his role in the rancourous primaries of the party.
The former governor of Edo State was said to have been asked to respond to allegations leveled against him by some aggrieved members of the party, including governors.
The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Lanre Issa-Onilu, however said, “We do not have any information on this rumour. More so, the chairman is not around in the country to confirm or deny this. As soon as we have any relevant information, you’ll be updated.”
In response to another question on when Oshiomhole traveled out of the country, he said, “I do not have this information. I know it is a scheduled personal trip he could not make last week due to the November 2 deadline for the submission of the list of candidates.”
Oshiomhole was said to have been briefly detained by the DSS on Sunday.
The invitation sent to the former Governor of Edo State by the agency was said to have been as a result of issues raised by some APC governors, that the primaries were not transparent.
A source close to the agency said Oshiomhole denied any wrong doing during the interrogation and that he did not compromise his office.
It was however not clear if the operatives muted the idea of him leaving office due to the crises in the party as a result of the outcome of the primaries.
