DSS stops EFCC from arresting Ayo Oke, Ekpeyong
There was tension in the Asokoro area of Abuja yesterday following a clash between officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The anti-graft agency stormed the residences of Ayo Oke, sacked director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and Ita Ekpeyong, the immediate past director-general of the DSS, in a bid to arrest both men.
The operatives attached to the two top security officials, however, resisted the move, resulting in a heated argument.The EFCC had invited Oke for questioning in connection with $43 million found in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.Oke’s wife, who has also been summoned, was identified as the owner of the apartment.
