Alleged DSS & EFCC Rivalry: The Lagos Office Is Our Facility – DSS Announces

The Department of State Services (DSS) has reacted to claims credited to some media outlets that the Service is embroiled in an unhealthy battle of wits with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The Agency’s Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya has announced that the DSS hasn’t in any wise barricaded the EFCC from entering its Lagos office, as reported.

According to the Statement, the DSS is in the right.

“No. It is not true. The Service is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility.”

The Statement further put paid to concerns regarding the ownership of the property at No. 15A Awolowo Road in Ikoyi, Lagos.

“By the way, there is no controversy over No 15A Awolowo Road as being insinuated by the Media. Did the efcc tell you it is contesting the ownership of the building?

” I will be surprised if it is contesting the ownership. Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is a common knowledge. It is a historical fact. Check it out.

“There is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything. Please do not create any imaginary one. They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight,” Afunanya assured.
