Tell Nigerians what you found in our office – APC challenges SSS

Lai Mohammed

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has challenged the State Security Service, SSS, to tell Nigerians the outcome of its investigations into the allegation of Permanent Voter Card (PVC) cloning that forced the security agency to unlawfully invade the party’s offices in Lagos over a week ago.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said if no evidence of PVC cloning was found, the SSS should apologize to Nigerians for acting on the basis of faulty intelligence.

It said any further delay in telling Nigerians the outcome of the investigations, after almost 10 days, could mean that the SSS is trying to manufacture evidence to support its faulty intelligence.

“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,” Mr. Mohammed said.

“On the basis of this uncorroborated announcement, 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.

“Therefore, we are now asking them to immediately announce their findings to the world. After all, it took them only a few hours after their Gestapo-like invasion of our offices before they issued their baseless allegation of PVC cloning to justify their action,” APC said.

The party said while it has gone to court to seek redress, the SSS still owes Nigerians an explanation and, if indeed no evidence of card cloning was found, an unreserved apology to them (Nigerians).

It advised the DSS to always endeavour to act professionally and fairly in carrying out its duties, rather than taking beer parlour gossips as useful intelligence, adding: “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.

    Oya over to pathetic PDP goons

    • Dele Sho

      But what part of SSS “investigation is on-going” does Lai Mohammed NOT understand?

      • Aso Rock

        “We also call on security agencies to fully investigate this atrocious cloning
        and ensure that whoever is found culpable faces the full weight of the law.”

        “We insist that the cloning of INEC PVCs is criminal and strikes at
        the very heart of our electoral process. We share the fear of a majority
        of Nigerians that the APC may have already started cloning ballot papers
        and other election documents”.

        “We believe that the APC, in its desperate attempt to grab power by all means,
        has already established cloning and hacking centers in all the 36 states of the
        federation to actualize their dubious machination to subvert the will of the people”.

    Lai Mohammed, here’s your answer…..

    “All items recovered (from the APC Data Centre) were documented
    at the back of the Search Warrant signed by the Service team leader
    and was witnessed by two (2) occupants of the premises, Onuchukwu Chika Augustine,
    an IT personnel and Olaposi FAYEMI, a supervisor on duty.

    “It is also important to state that, photographs (still and video)
    of Service personnel entering and exiting the premises were taken.
    The search operation lasted for two (2) hours”.

    “Exploitation of some of the recovered items has revealed that one particular individual
    had his data captured eighteen times with different names, addresses, but yet, same photo.
    Further investigation is ongoing and findings shall be made public.”

    • segun

      I think this woman called Marlyn Ogar is the head of the security unit of PDP. This is a shame.

    • concernedcitizen2014

      His data has an APC member or his data with Inec. What has APC membership data got to do with SSS. Can she prove that they were not in the process of prunning the data. The same way INEC filters the data after capture.

    • tundemash

      Cl0wn ….. you and Marilyn Ogar are d@ft … if APC has multiple registration in their membership database , what has that got to do with INEC registration? How do you know APC is not in the process of data verification and validation after the nation-wide membership registration ? Does APC register voters with INEC ? Do you reason before you copy and paste ?

    • dark knight

      Asuquo Etinanor whatever you call yourself, read your copy and paste well next time before you distrup reasonable conversation with useless copy and paste facts from Marilyn Ogar, the words in her statement read “Exploitation of some of the recovered items has revealed that one particular individual
      had his data captured eighteen times with different names, addresses, but yet, same photo” where is reply to question pose by the APC scrib? anyway tundemash has said it all

  • King Carlos

    Oya where is Olisah Metuh and Ogar. Useless and unintelligent agency. Nigerians are being killed everyday but they are busy working on how to return Jonathan in 2015.

  • Peter Irene

    The police and DSS are working for PDP.

  • LoveYourHaters

    why is APC in a hurry, this kind of investigation is not rushed, it will time for the SSS to complete her investigation, if APC is not guilty, they will wait and stop making noise. Is like APC is jittery, otherwise, they should allow SSS to do her investigation, as the case is already before the court.

    • Sword of Damocles

      this is how it comes together in ya dome huh?

      • The Nationalst


      • tundemash

        i bet the guys is confused with your query !

    • Leslie

      You should ask the SSS and PDP why they were in so much of a hurry concluding and insisting that cloning was going on.And now they say they’re investigating. Isn’t it sort of senseless,like every other thing this GEJ led govt does?Please try not to involve yourself in such senselessness.


        Stop the mischief !! The SSS must be addressed independently !!

        • Leslie

          And from their recent actions,do they seem independent? Ask yourself.


      “The guilty are afraid”…..If the APC have a clear conscience,they should not be worried,in fact they should be asking the security agencies to take enough time for proper investigations !!



    • tundemash

      seriously could you explain what APC membership database has got to do with INEC’s voters database ?

  • Gbemileke

    As with the case of many things in this country, security operatives acts like mobsters. If you invade a place based on a tip off and you are making inferences and conclusive statement while you are still at the same time investigating leaves little to be said about the level of professionalism. Meanwhile i will assume if there where very profound evidence we should by now have people arraigned in court for this offences no matter who they are. But as usual, they will always go to the press with baseless accusation and then when the case is charge to court is either they are struck out for lack of evidence or lack of “committed prosecution” by the security agencies as we have seen in several cases both by the duo of police and SSS and the likes of EFCC, ICPC and co.

  • Mr. Abdin

    Lai please tell them they should tell us what they found in the APC office.
