ABUJA – Some operatives of the Economic and Financial Times Commission (EFCC) and the State Security Service, reportedly clashed on Tuesday over an attempt to arrest the embattled DG of NIA.
The inter agency war between the EFCC and the Department of State Security Service, DSS, and the National Intelligence Agency, NIA, burst into the open early Tuesday morning when a combined team of EFCC officials and police officers attempted to arrest the former heads of the two agencies.
The EFCC officials tried to arrest the former head of the NIA, Ayo Oke, and former head of the SSS, Ita Ekpeyong, from their homes on Mamman Nasir Street in the Asokoro district of Abuja but were resisted by armed security agents of the two agencies.
This has led to a continued stand off between armed security officers from all the four agencies as at the time of this report causing a traffic mayhem in the area and an uncertain security outcome from the situation.
This is a developing story, we’ll bring you more details later….
