Security intelligence report is yet another reason why the men of Department of State Services, (DSS) stormed and ransacked the Ikeja, Lagos State office of the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC), spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, has disclosed.
Ogar in a press statement issued Sunday, revealed that DSS had earlier received a petition alleging untoward activities ongoing in a building located on Bola Ajbola Street, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, stating that the outfit was hinted about attempts in the office to clone INEC Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVCs), subsequently hack them into the INEC data base as well as replace the hacked with those originally produced by the INEC.
She stated it was based on this the DSS “placed the building under surveillance and having been convinced that some unwholesome activities were going on in the building, it undertook a raid of the premises”.
Controversial Ogar added that some arrests were made, a server, three hard drives and 31 Ghana must go bags of hard copy documents were recovered and taken away for further investigation.
She also noted that the opposition record entry office was without a signpost to indicate location or presence of office, whether private or public, in the premises.
It would be recalled the invasion has been condemned by the APC through its National publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, in a a statement he issued Saturday in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state, South Western Nigeria.
The Party described the scenario as “an operation of terror and brigandage” which was unleashed on a legitimate operation of a leading national party.
