DSS Blocks EFCC Office, Denies Staff Access

Operatives of the Department of State Security (DSS) on Tuesday, stormed the Lagos office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and prevented officials of the anti-graft agency from gaining access to their office in Ikoyi, Lagos.

Daily Report Nigeria gathered that the development is coming on the heels of an ongoing rivalry between the DSS and the EFCC regarding the ownership of the building.

DSS operatives reportedly stormed the office around 7:00 am on Tuesday, and refused leaving despite a long dialogue between officers both agencies.

An EFCC official, who pleaded anonymity, told Punch that “There’s been a running battle between us and the DSS over who owns the office because the office was used by them before the EFCC came on board and it was handed over to us.

“But it’s been an administrative issue, and the matter is not in court and hasn’t caused any fracas before now. But we don’t understand why they have to block our office and deny our officials access when a new government just came in.”

On the other hand, a source in the DSS said, “The office used to be ours, and we have been fighting over it for years now, and the EFCC knows”.

Neither spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujare nor Dr Peter Afunaya of the DSS were yet to make an official statement on the incident as of press time.
