The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised the alarm about the safety of the security password of its data centre in Ikeja which was raided in the wee hours of Saturday by a combined team of the Department of State Security (DSS), Police and Army.

Lagos APC Publicity Secretary Joe Igbokwe lamented last night that three Supervisors taken away during the raid were still being held. “We hope they are not being held and tortured to to provide them with the the security password of the Data Centre. We want these workers to be released unconditionally without any further delay,” he said in a statement.

According to Igbokwe, “Lagos APC wants to inform Nigerians that out of 28 workers at APC Data Centre Lagos arrested by DSS, Police and the Army by 5:30 am on Saturday morning of Nov 22nd 2014, 25 of them have been released by 9:30 pm yesterday. Three of them are still in the custody namely:

1. Chinedu Atuche – Data Supervisor

2. Fayemi Olaposi – Data Supervisor

3. Chika – IT Supervisor

“We are at a loss why these three are still being held. They have committed no offence and they are carrying out a legitimate duty. We hope they are not being held and tortured to to provide them with the the security password of the Data Centre. We want these workers to be released unconditionally without any further delay.

“We insist that what happened yesterday is bizarre, crude and unacceptable and it remains the worst form of political rascality and irresponsibility ever recorded in Nigeria since 1999. The damage done to the Data Centre and the violation of the fundamental human rights of the workers tells a big story of what to expect in the days ahead. The ruling party is getting desperate and if they are not called to order things can get worse.”
