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.
