Vacate EFCC’s Office Immediately – Tinubu Orders DSS | READ FULL DETAILS

The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, has ordered operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS), to immediately vacate the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Tinubu’s order came on the heel of a drama that played out on Tuesday, between the two agencies.

DSS operatives had stormed the EFCC Ikoyi office, claiming ownership of the building and stopping officials from accessing their workplace. Gunshots were also heard in the area.

“It is not correct that the DSS barricaded EFCC from entering its office. No. It is not true.

“The Service is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility.”

“There is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything. Please do not create any imaginary ones.”

“They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight” Peter Afunanya said.

In reaction to the development, the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwajuren said;

“By denying operatives access to their offices, the Commission’s operations at its largest hub with over 500 personnel, hundreds of exhibits, and many suspects in detention have been disrupted”.

“All of these have wider implications for the nation’s fight against economic and financial crimes”.

“The siege is inconsistent with the synergy expected of agencies working for the same government and nation, especially when there are ongoing discussions on the matter.”
