(November 25, 2014) The All Progressives Congress, APC and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have been trading accusations following a raid of an APC data centre in Lagos by the Department of State Security, DSS at the weekend. The DSS alleged that the APC was cloning the Permanent Voters Card as well as utilizing technologies at the centre to hack into INEC’s data base to compromise the 2015 elections.
The PDP in a statement vowed to resist the APC in the latter’s alleged attempt to rig the polls.
It called on security agencies to fully investigate the alleged cloning and ensure that whoever is found culpable faces the full weight of the law.
In Lagos, the APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed alleged that the PDP was behind the DSS raid on its office.
Conducting newsmen round the raided data centre located on No 10, Bola Ajibola street, Off Allen Avenue in Ikeja, Alhaji Mohammed said the facility was being used to compile a database of APC members.
He decried the vandalism of equipment at the centre saying that with the damage done to the systems, it was impossible for the party to continue with its efforts to input members data into a database.
The APC National Publicity Secretary vowed that the raid would be challenged in court.
He asked the DSS to return equipment seized by the DSS during the raid.
