JUST IN: EFCC arrests ex-DSS DG Ita Ekpeyong


JUST IN: EFCC arrests ex-DSS DG Ita Ekpeyong



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested a former
Director-General of the Department of State Services, Ita Ekpeyong.




Our correspondent who witnessed the arrest at 46, Maman Nasir Street,
Asokoro, Abuja, on Thursday afternoon reported that the EFCC men came
in three buses and some patrol vehicles accompanied by over 20 armed
policemen.




The operatives then searched the mansion for over two hours before leaving at 3.20pm.


It was observed that no cash was recovered.




The raid occurred barely 10 months after the DSS under the leadership
of the recently sacked DG, Lawal Daura, prevented EFCC men from
searching or arresting Ekpeyong despite a court order.




Sources told our correspondent that the acting President, Prof. Yemi
Osinbajo, ordered the raid following a meeting with the acting Chairman
of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu; and the new DSS boss, Matthew Seyifa, on
Wednesday.
