EFCC arrests ex-DSS DG Ita Ekpeyong

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

Punchng reports that the arrest happened at 46, Maman Nasir Street, Asokoro, Abuja, on Thursday afternoon adding that EFCC men came in three buses and some patrol vehicles accompanied by over 20 armed policemen.


The mansion was searched for over two hours before they left at 3.20pm upon not finding any cash in the building.

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 also confirmed to Punch that 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.
