EFCC arrests former DSS boss, Ita Ekpenyong

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested Ita Ekpeyong, the penultimate former Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS).

Ekpeyong was arrested at his Asokoro, Abuja home, on Thursday afternoon, after a thorugh search of his house by the EFCC operatives.

In November 2017, EFCC secured a court order to arrest Ekpeyong, but its officials were prevented from effecting the arrest by the DSS under the leadership of Lawal Daura.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo ordered Ekpeyong’s arrest following his sacking of Lawal, and after his meeting with Ibrahim Magu, Acting EFCC Chairman, and Matthew Seyifa, the new DSS DG.
