How Oshiomhole ‘collected $55m bribe’ for APC primaries – DSS

National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, had allegedly collected at least $55 million as bribe from various party chieftains during the APC primaries, according to a report by the Department of State Security (DSS), exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters.

The secret police has written to President Muhammadu Buhari, asking him to prosecute Oshiomhole for receiving  the $55 million bribes.

Oshiomhole was earlier interrogated by the DSS. He also berated the agency for dabbling into partisan issues. He later accused some APC chieftains for working for the PDP.

The DSS also forwarded its report to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

“Total $55 million is what Adams is alleged to have received. Some party chieftains claim it is $80 million,” a source aware of the contents of the report had told SaharaReporters.

According to report, $17 million is what Oshiomhole allegedly received as bribe from Zamfara: $10 million for him, $7 million shared between Farouk Adamu, former minority leader of the House of Representatives; Niyi Adebayo, former Governor of Ekiti State; and other party chieftains.

“Adamu was the collection coordinator,” said the source. “Hope Uzodinma, the APC governorship candidate in Imo State, gave $3 million; Rochas Okorocha, Governor of the state, offered $500,000 but it was rejected; Dapo Abiodun, the APC candidate in Ogun State, paid $5 million. The DSS also said some of the money was paid into Oshiomhole’s niece’s account.”
