Former Governor of Edo state Adams Oshiomhole has responded to questions over his questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS)

According to TheCable, he was on his way back to the country from the USA where he went to see his wife Lara

Oshiomhole did say that there was nothing nefarious about the questioning by the DSS

He said he  “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention”.

Oshiomhole added: “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 also addressed claims that the DSS said he was to return the next day

Also Oshiomhole claimed that he was not released on bail and that Yahaya Bello, Governor of Kogi state, did not come to pick him up

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

Oshiomhole did take shots at PDP, condemning them 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.”
