Oshiomhole narrates encounter with SSS

APC chairman Adams Oshiomhole

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, said he had nine-hour interrogation with the Department of State Services, DSS.

He, however, denied allegation that he was arrested, detained and granted administrative bail by the Department of State Services, DSS, after the interrogation.

Mr Oshiomhole, who spoke with newsmen in Lagos, maintained that he only met with DSS officials once and had conversation with them, saying, “It was 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,” he added.

Mr Oshiomhole said the SSS did not reschedule another meeting with him as reported in the media.

Reacting to the Peoples Democratic Party’s call to arrest him, he 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.”
