The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has obtained two separate warrants from a court to arrest a former Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr Ita Ekpenyong and that of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Mr Ayodele Oke.

 

The commission confirmed this to Channels Television on Monday, adding that it also got the permission of the court to search the residences of the two former agency chiefs.

Last week, officials of the EFCC had attempted to arrest the NIA and DSS bosses but were prevented by armed officials from their agencies.

It was gathered that the EFCC operatives had arrived at the official residences of the former heads of the agencies located at numbers 21 and 46, Mamman Nasir Street in Asokoro, Abuja to effect the arrest only to meet resistance by the operatives.
