The trending news now is that Oshiomhole confirmed, he was indeed quizzed by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) over the APC primaries before he left the country.
But as reported by the Cable, Oshiomhole said he “saw DSS only once and it was a conversation, not an arrest or detention”.
“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.”
He also denied reports that the DSS asked him to return the next day.
Oshiomhole said he was billed to travel abroad on Monday but postponed the trip for a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said he eventually left the country on Tuesday.
He also denied reports that he was released on administrative bail, adding that Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi, did not come to pick him up from the DSS office, contrary to media reports.
