Opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Thursday charged the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, and INTERPOL to help track down the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, believed to have travelled outside the country in questionable circumstances.
Comrade Oshiomhole disappeared from the public radar on Wednesday after he was reportedly interrogated twice Sunday and Monday by the Department of State Services, DSS, over alleged corruption charges.
Reacting to the disappearance of the APC national chairman, the PDP noted that 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 also demanded that APC and the Buhari Presidency must immediately produce Adams Oshiomhole to face investigation and prosecution in courts.
