The Peoples Democratic Party has charged the National Intelligence Agency, Department of State Services and International Police to track down the factional National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, who has been accused of massive corruption.
Oshiomhole, who was quizzed by the DSS over the weekend, the PDP alleged, has since left the country.
The party noted that Oshiomhole’s swift flight out of the country in 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.
The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said: “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.”
