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.
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.”
