CUPP accuses DSS of leaking opposition’s phone conversations to APC
The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of eavesdropping on telephone conversations of opposition party members in the country.
The coalition’s national spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, disclosed this a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday.
According to him, the conversations, which were mainly opposition’s strategies for the forthcoming elections, were being transmitted by the DSS to the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
“We wish to express our shock and disappointment with the All Progressives Congress and unscrupulous security agencies who, we discovered are taping our leaders’ calls and leaking our electoral strategy,” he said.
“The opposition has uncovered constant tapping of our calls and location marking by the ruling APC, using the DSS.
“We are utterly disgusted with this shameless act. This administration has proven that nothing is sacred to them anymore.”
Ugochinyere asked opposition members to abandon telephone conversations and adopt physical meetings or make use of the Whatsapp platform.
“We also urge our members to use Wi-Fi network to power their WhatsApp conversations than the use of telecommunications means which they easily have access to.
“As for the immoral security agencies who allow themselves to be used by this ruthless government, stop taping our calls and leaking our electoral strategy, channel your energy to your duty which is serving our country rather than belittling yourselves,” he added.
