The Opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged various security agencies to track the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole allegedly on the run after being interrogated by the Department of State Security (DSS) earlier in the week.
News filtered that Mr. Oshiomole who had served for 8 year as the Governor of Edo state was interrogated for hours by the DSS over the fallout of the primary elections of the APC across the country.
There has been mounting opposition from several Governors on the platform of the APC, accusing Oshiomole of corrupt dealings, imposition and impunity regarding the outcome of the primaries in several states across the country.
The PDP released a statement calling on the DSS, NIA as well as Interpol to track Oshiomole who reportedly fled the country to the United States after his ordeal with the DSS.
In the same vein, the statement also mocked the ruling APC, describing it as a party that habours and shields corrupt persons while President Buhari says he is fighting corruption.
Read the statement below;
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and INTERPOL to help track down the factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole, believed to be on the run outside the country since his reported interrogation by the Department of State Services (DSS) over alleged corruption charges.
The party notes that Adams Oshiomole’s swift flight out of the country, at the heat of the investigation, is suspect and goes to confirm allegations that the Muhammadu Buhari Presidency is shielding him from prosecution for fear that his investigation would implicate certain interests at the Presidency and the APC.
It is ludicrous that the APC, in its lying proclivities, believes that by dismissing Oshiomole’s arrest as a rumour and aiding him to momentarily flee the country, it would succeed in getting him off the DSS hook as well as sweeping the matter out of public discourse with its famished broom.
No! Nigerians are already aware that Oshiomole has not denied his investigation including his reported confession that the Presidency was in the loop of all his actions.
The PDP had always cautioned Adams Oshiomole of his unbridled arrogance, lust for power and alleged embezzlement of public funds for which he must surely have his day in the hands of the law.
The PDP therefore demands that APC and the Buhari Presidency must immediately produce Adams Oshiomole to face investigation and prosecution in our courts.
