The Department of State Services, DSS, has reportedly been dragged into the crisis in the All Progressives Congress, APC, leading to a stand-off between chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and the security agency.
The development has also worsened the crisis of confidence among APC governors. The governors, Vanguard gathered yesterday, were miffed with the action of two southern governors who lost out in the recent primaries.
Some governors, it was gathered, instigated Oshiomhole’s interrogation by the DSS for hours last Sunday.
A key aim of the interrogation, Vanguard learned, was for Oshiomhole to resign. The national chairman, however, stood his ground, saying he will only resign before the President.
There were indications that issues flowing from his past may have been brought up in what one source yesterday described as a well planned civilian coup that was orchestrated to ease him out of office.
