The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has alleged that the chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomole, has sneaked out of Nigeria after his alleged detention and grilling by operatives of the Department of State Security DSS.
The national chairman, who suddenly left the country early Tuesday morning was allegedly probed for two days by DSS over the numerous petitions levelled against him.
It was gathered that petitions were sent to DSS, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), including the presidency over the APC’s primary elections which led to internal crisis within the states.
However, PDP in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, has alleged that Oshiomole’s swift flight out of Nigeria clearly showed that he is guilty of the crimes.
The party advised the international police INERPOL and the National Intelligence Agency NIA to go after him.
The statement read, “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 Oshiomhole, 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 Oshiomhole’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 Oshiomhole’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 Oshiomhole 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 Oshiomhole 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 Oshiomhole to face investigation and prosecution in our courts.”
