The All Progressives Congress, APC, has challenged the Department of State Security Service, otherwise known as SSS, to tell Nigerians what it found in its office raided by the service on 22 November.
Lai Mohammed, APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, in a statement he issued Monday in Abuja, said 10 days after the incident and it went to town that that the party was warehousing and cloning INEC Permanent Voters Cards, PVC, the SSS has refused to disclose the outcome of its investigation.
Mohammed said “Without carrying out any investigation and with no shred of evidence, the DSS gleefully announced to the world that they stormed our data centre because they got information that Permanent Voters Cards were being cloned there.”
“On the basis of this uncorroborated announcement,” Mohammed added, “the PDP categorically accused the APC of cloning PVCs. It is now over a week since the DSS carted away materials and computer servers after ransacking our offices for over two hours. The agency’s experts must have analysed the information in the materials and on the servers.” He said the SSS merely claimed the APC was cloning PVCs to justify its ‘Gestapo-invasion’ of its office.
Mohammed said “It is this type of faulty intelligence that has been stifling the efforts to deconstruct Boko Haram and facilitate the battle to end the insurgency that is daily killing and maiming innocent Nigerians.”
While the party is in court, Mohammed urged the ‘SSS to apologise to Nigerians for venting faulty intelligence and spewing spurious allegation against the party.’
