DSS spokesman, Mr. Peter Afunanya, yesterday, claimed ignorance of the interrogation of Comrade Oshiomhole when contacted yesterday.
“I am not aware of what you are saying,” Mr. Afunanya said yesterday.
Vanguard, however, learned that the questioning of Oshiomhole took place on Sunday shortly after he returned from Edo State for a domestic engagement.
The interrogation of Oshiomhole, it was gathered, has worsened the crisis in the party with governors aligned to the national chairman rebuking their two southern colleagues who reportedly orchestrated what one source said was a ‘well orchestrated coup.’
The governors, it was gathered, fumed that their two colleagues want to melt the party because of their interests. The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu claimed ignorance of the interrogation.
“We do not have any information on this rumour. More so, the Chairman is not around in the country to confirm or deny this. As soon as we have any relevant information, you’ll be updated,” he said.
