Why We Have Been Unable To Investigate Ekiti Rigging Tape- President

The president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has told Thisday Newspaper, that he has been told by the head of the Department of State Security, DSS when he inquired if an investigation about the leaked Ekiti rigging audiotape was ongoing, but he was told that it was stalled since the army captain, Sagir Koli who leaked it has gone into hiding and cannot authenticate the tape.

Premium Times reports that Mr Koli was looked for to be arrested but when he got a tip off he escaped before they could get him, sadly and very sadly, his 15-year-old brother, Ahmadu Koli, a pupil of Army Children School, who was staying with him, was arrested, tortured at a military facility in Ibadan Oyo State and detained for about five months.

Below is what President Jonathan said about the rigging audiotape;


“In fact, when this story came up, I asked the DG Department of State Security Service if they had investigated the matter, and he told me that they had some investigations, and then called for the person who claimed he recorded it and that he disappeared and nobody can reach him.”

“There was no formal petition before them, but because of the general interest, they wanted to have him interviewed to know where this was coming from. If someone comes up with a spurious allegation that has no substance and the person disappears, of course, what do you want me to do? Definitely, anytime we get him, he’ll have to substantiate his allegations. There are a lot of false stories being circulated and it is very sad,” he added.

On why he said the story could be fabricated, the president said;

“I have not watched the video. I said that it was a fabrication because, you see, people now, especially with the social media; we could be here and discuss issues and somebody will hack some of our voices and create a story that never happened.


“Therefore I am not saying that a meeting in question was held or not held, but the issue of conspiring to rig, I said it was a fabrication,” he said.

    2. There's nothing dumb about it. If u listened to that tape you'll see that there nothing in it that projects towards the rigging of the election. Fine, the general and the ekiti gov with his friends were discussing how to go about the election, which is what anyone contesting would plan ahead. At no point in it did I hear that they should count 10 instead of 5, or that they should steal ballot boxes or whatever. The only incriminating thing in it is where Koro tried to threaten the general by saying that his files are on his desk and that he can make or mar him from above. Other than that I repeat that the tape is not conclusive enough to be presented as evidence to the rigging of elections. They were merely discussing how to dispatch security men to the appropriate places, don't forget that Fayemi also did the same thing.... the general is a military person and not an INEC official who could have been able to rig for them. If Jega was there present I would have agreed it was a plot to rig.

      People should learn to investigate matters on their own instead of joining d bandwagon to repeat cliches for the sake of talking. I am not in anyway a pdp member. I'm just a Nigerian who thinks critically and analyzes issues as they are presented. Nigerians should take charge of their thinking faculties and be independent with their judgement and the spirit to discern. Before u make bias judgements and conclusions u must first scrutinize the matter.

    3. God bless you Sunshine. People just join the bandwagon to shout. Just like people shouting about 30 trillion missing without thinking how huge the amount is and how the figure was made up out of mere assumptions.

  4. Why investigate yourself when you know you're guilty?

  5. I don't think the story was fabricated since senator Musiliu Obanikoro claimed it was true. The captain ran away for his dear life in which I would do the same if I were to be in this situation

  8. You don't want to investigate on the audio tape because your party was involved. Stop deceiving us

  9. The tape is fake, theres no need for investigation. I wonder why the APC didnt tender it as evidence during the hearings in court. They tendered it to the NIgerian people through the media. Thank God Ladun did not put it in here

  24. The 15-years old that was arrested and tortured was an allegation Premiumtimes posted, no one knows if its true. Even if it was, it had nothing to do with the presidency but the military probably trying to get to soldier on AWOL. No president would give such order no matter how wicked. You all need to read btw the lines.

  31. If the video was indeed a fabrication, what is the basis of placing a ''minor'' into custody and torturing him. There is something called 'the writ of habeas corpus' but this is a lawless nation. Its not a military government ant yet, our president is using the military to intimidate innocent people. Why torture the poor boy? Ha! Jona, e no go better for you!
