DSS blocks officers access at EFCC office

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), were on Tuesday morning locked out of their Lagos office by men of the Department of State Services (DSS).

EFCC spokesperson Wilson Uwujaren claimed the DSS officers “barricaded the entrance with armored personnel carriers”.

The DSS officials were said to have been stationed at the office of the EFCC located at Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, on Tuesday morning.

The tussle between both agencies has to do with the ownership of the building.

Reacting to the incident, Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesperson, said his agency did not barricade the EFCC office in Ikoyi, adding that the DSS is only occupying its facility.

“It is not correct that the DSS barricaded EFCC from entering its office. No, it is not true. The service is only occupying its facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility,” Afunanya said in a statement.

“By the way, there is no controversy over No 15A Awolowo Road as being insinuated by the media. Did the EFCC tell you it is contesting the ownership of the building? I will be surprised if it is contesting the ownership.

“Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is common knowledge. It is a historical fact.

“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.”
