DSS Recommends Oshiomhole’s Prosecution Over Bribery Allegation

By Ikenga Chronicles November 16, 2018

The Department of State Services (DSS) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to prosecute Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for allegedly receiving at least $55million in bribes before and after party primaries all over the country.

In October, Oshiomhole and his cronies reportedly received up to $50million in bribes to award last-minute tickets to undeserving members of the party.

The DSS subsequently grilled Oshiomhole last week, with reports emerging that the former labour leader had been asked to quit his office.

Oshiomhole responded by saying the DSS did not hire him, hence could not demand his resignation from office.

“Total $55 million is what Adams is alleged to have received. Some party chieftains claim it is $80 million,” a source aware of the contents of the report told newsmen.

According to the report, $17 million is what Oshiomhole allegedly received as bribe from Zamfara: $10 million for him, $7 million shared between Farouk Adamu, former Minority Leader of the House of Representatives; Niyi Adebayo, former Governor of Ekiti State. He received from other party chieftains, too.

“Adamu was the collection coordinator,” said the source.

“Hope Uzodinma, the APC governorship candidate in Imo State, gave $3 million; Rochas Okorocha, Governor of the state, offered $500,000 but it was rejected; Dapo Abiodun, the APC candidate in Ogun State, paid $5 million. The DSS also said some of the money was paid into Oshiomhole’s niece’s account.”
