Adams Oshiomhole To Face Further DSS Questioning

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, is expected to return to the Department of State Services for further interrogation anytime he returns to the country.
 

The Punch newspaper reports that President Muhammadu Buhari was aware of the investigation of the former governor of Edo State by the security agency.

It was gathered that the President was informed by the Director-General of the DSS, Mr Yusufi Bichi, about the desire of the agency to grill Oshiomhole over allegations leveled against him by some aggrieved members of the party.

Unnamed Presidency sources was quoted by the paper as saying that the President actually asked the secret police to “go ahead and do their job” when he was told about the allegations of the party chairman.

Oshiomhole, who became the national chairman of the party less than five months ago, has been having a running battle with some governors and leaders within the ruling party.

The leaders and the governors believed that the former governor did not handle the just concluded party primaries across the country well.

It was learnt that some of the governors, especially those  who were unable to secure party tickets for their favourite candidates, had been mounting pressure on the President to overrule the party chairman on the choice of candidates from their states.

It was reported on Wednesday that the DSS grilled Oshiomhole for about nine hours between Sunday and Monday before he traveled out of the county.

Investigations showed that the interrogation of Oshiomhole was kept secret because the DSS believed it was a party matter.
