Oshimohole was alleged to have received bribes to manipulate the results of the just concluded APC primaries across the country.
Speaking to newsmen on Saturday, November 10, 2018, the APC chairman, who said he only had a conversation with the DSS. He also noted that he was neither arrested nor detained.
He also said that the agency did not ask him to return to their office again to talk about the issue.
According to The Cable, Oshiomhole said
“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.”
The APC chairman also cleared the air over insinuations that he fled the country after he was interrogated by the DSS. He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for reportedly calling for his arrest by Interpol.
The APC chairman also accused some members of the ruling party of working with the PDP. 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.”
Adding that “a few important members of APC may be conniving with PDP because they preferred the impunity of the PDP era”.
He said that he had already planned to travel, but postponed it because of a meeting with President Buhari.
