The Department of State Service (DSS) has disclosed that it was offered N14 million by a “certain political party” to compromise last Saturday governorship election in Osun state.

Speaking at a media briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, spokesperson of the DSS, Marilyn Ogar repeated her call on politicians to leave the agency out of politics.

“I’m saying clearly, a director in charge of election duties (security) was offered N4 million for himself and N10 million for the hooded men,” she said.

“It is because the money was declined, that is why the certain political party is having a running battle with the DSS. Thank God the APC won the election; its loss could have been blamed on the DSS.”

Ogar stated emphatically that the DSS was made up of professionals who would not compromise for any reason, especially as they are well paid.

“Our men in operations for elections are paid upfront, so there will be no reason for taking bribes”, she said.

Ogar emphasised the importance of security agents at elections, noting that security operatives had in the past helped in various elections across the country.

“The presence of security agents in Osun state helped prevent attacks on some chiefs in the state, the Oba of Ede in particular,” she further said.

    This information should not have been for the consumption of the public for gawd sake! A bribe of N14million in offering to the State Department and it was rejected and someone thought the Service has done the Nation great deal of favour by announcing on the media that the ‘boys’ rejected the money and those that offered it are still moving around freely? This must either be a lie or this country is sick!
