According to report, that Oshiomole was detained by the DSS for two days over alleged bribery allegation laid against him by some APC governors.
He was later released by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State after he underwent nine hours interrogation by the DSS.
After the series of interrogation as regards to the petitions leveled against him due to the primary election, he was asked to resign his position as the party chairman.
Daily Trust reported that most of the petitions, were from Imo, Ogun, Niger and Zamfara states. There were also petitions from Kaduna, Bauchi, Adamawa, Delta and Cross River states.
When he received some petitions, President Muhammadu Buhari ordered that all the monies collected from various aspirants all over the country should be returned to them. Presidency officials were however not available to confirm or refute this claim.
Following Oshiomhole’s sudden departure yesterday, APC and Presidency officials were reportedly huddled in discussions about the chairman’s fate and the damage that recent events could do to the party, ahead of the 2019 elections.
Meanwhile, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Malam Lanre Issa-Onilu, confirmed to journalists yesterday in Abuja that Oshiomhole has traveled out of the country.
He said “He traveled last night (Tuesday night)” but added that “I do not have this information [as to where he traveled to]. I do know it’s a scheduled personal trip he could not make last week due to the November 2 deadline for the submission of candidates.”
