FCT, Abuja - The ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has reacted to the invitation of its chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, by the department of states security service (DSS) over allegations of instigating a coup.
According to a statement made available to Legit.ng on Tuesday, February 15, the director of Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, has urged the police to let their member be.
Onanuga, in the statement, accused the police of interfering in the matter despite the DSS already carrying out investigations and notifying Fani-Kayode that his presence would be required at the DSS headquarters for questioning in the coming days.

"Despite the well-publicized invitation of Chief Femi Fani-Kayode by the DSS and the report that the secret police asked him to return for further investigation today, we were surprised that the police have also jumped into the same matter.
"On Tuesday, the AIG Federal Investigation Bureau also invited Fani-Kayode for questioning.
"The APC-PCC is concerned about the latest invitation by another security agency, just some 10 days to the election when he is most needed as our director of New Media."
Onanuga, in the statement titled, POLICE SHOULD LEAVE FEMI FANI-KAYODE ALONE, urged the Police to allow the DSS to conclude their investigation.
According to the statement, the embattled APC chieftain is expected to go for another round of questioning at the DSS offices as part of the investigation process for the allegations against him.
