The National Chairman of the ruling party, APC, was reportedly detained at the headquarters of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Sunday November 4th.

DSS interrogates Oshiomhole over APC primaries, asks him to resign

TheCable reports that the former Edo state governor who emerged the chairman of the ruling party in August, was grilled by DSS operatives for nine hours after some APC governors alleged that he received bribes during the party’s primary elections across the country.

Oshiomole during the interrogation, was asked to resign by the security operatives.

Oshiomhole who has been in a battle with some APC governors over the outcome of the party primaries, resisted the pressure to resign, saying he would only do so if he loses the confidence of President Buhari.

The APC chairman told the DSS that the president was in the loop of every action he took during the party’s primaries.

“Adams Oshiomhole was arrested by the DSS, they didn’t show him any petition. It was alleged by some governors that he collected bribe during the primaries. He was told to resign and he told DSS operatives that he will resign if he loses the confidence of the president. He said everything the party did, he (Buhari) was in the know.” a source said

Another source said the president expressed shock at the governors’ move, saying he was not aware of the development.

“On Monday night Oshiomhole met with the president and briefed him on what happened and the president was shocked. The president said he did not know about it and promised to look into it,” the source said.

The APC primaries were marred by controversies. Elections in some states had to be repeated. Governors Rochas Okorocha of Imo state and his Ogun state counterpart, Ibikunle Amosun, have openly condemned Oshiomole for the manner in which the party’s governorship primaries held in their states. It is believed that Oshiomole prevented their annointed candidates from emerging the governorship flag-bearers for the 2019 election.
