DSS Arrest: Adams Oshiomhole Breaks Silence

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Adams Oshiomhole, has opened up over his encounter with the operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Speaking in an interaction with editors in Lagos on Saturday, Oshiomhole disclosed that he “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention”.

He said: “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 further revealed that the DSS did not ask him to return the next day, contrary to media reports.

Oshiomhole stated that he was billed to travel abroad on Monday but postponed the trip for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari. He said he eventually left the country on Tuesday.

Oshiomhole noted that he was not released on administrative bail. He added that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State did not come to pick him up from the DSS office.

He said: “I was the one who called Yahaya Bello and he came but I drove home in my own car.”

Oshiomhole attacked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for calling on INTERPOL 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.”
