The Department of State Services has said that its investigations indicated that the All Progressives Congress had plans to hack into the database of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The service explained that the confessions from the staff arrested at the APC office at 10,Bola Ajibola Street, Ikeja, and the items retrieved from the building showed that the party had an elaborate plan to hack into the commission’s database and inflate the number of its membership.
The Deputy Director, Public Relations, DSS, Marilyn Ogar said this at a news conference on Wednesday in Abuja.
In a statement signed by its Deputy Director, Public Relations , Marylin Ogar, the DSS said, ‘’the free opinions variously expressed by the APC Publicity Secretary and a number of uninformed members of the public on the action of the Service, truth remains sacred and sacrosanct’’ .
It further disclosed that going by its investigation, ‘’ there was an elaborate and well-articulated plan to inflate the Party’s membership data as well as hack into INEC’s voter registration database through the creation of party membership forms and cards to match INEC’s voters register across the country.’’
In November 2014, the DSS accused the party capturing individuals 18 times with different names, addresses after raid at its data center..
