Just in: What DSS asked me - Oshiomhole finally reveals encounter with security agency

- Comrade Adams Oshiomhole meets with editors and reveals he was actually questioned by the DSS recently

- Oshiomhole, the national chairman of the APC, questions the powers of the DSS to interrogate him concerning political matters

- He denies being granted administrative bail or absconding from Nigeria as a result of the encounter with the security agency

The national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on Saturday, November 9, relieved his encounter with officials of the Department of State Service (DSS) recently.

Oshiomhole, who met with some editors in Lagos, however wondered if it was the duty of the DSS to carry out such interrogation.

The Cable reports Oshiomhole as saying he “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention.”

Oshiomhole added: “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.

“They would have said democracy is under threat and would have fired a letter to the UN as they often ridicule themselves.

“A few important members of APC may be conniving with PDP because they preferred the impunity of the PDP era.” earlier learnt that four state governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) were reportedly set to fight Adams Oshiomhole.

The state governors - Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara; Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna and Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun, have accused the national leadership of the party of imposition of candidates. ( -> We have updated to serve you better.
