DSS’ siege on our Lagos Office has never happened - EFCC

DSS’ siege on our Lagos Office has never happened - EFCC

Eric Patrick

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Lagos State Command, has condemned the unnoticed siege at their office on No.15 Awolowo road, Ikoji by agents of the Department of State Service, DSS, on May 30, 2023.

According to EFCC, the entrance to their office was barricaded with armoured personnel carriers, depriving 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.

"We have cohabited with the DSS in that facility for 20 years without incident", Says the commission.


The Economic and Financial Crime Commission noted that cases scheduled for court hearing today have been aborted, while many suspects who had been invited for questioning are left unattended.

Even more alarming is that suspects in detention are left without care with grave implications for their rights as inmates.

All of these have wilder 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.

Thewatch News reports that, some group of armed DSS officials allegedly invaded the office of the commission.

All efforts by the Thewatch News to contact the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, on his Twitter account prove abortive.

The reason for the siege is yet to be known.
