Rivalry Between DSS, EFCC Over Ikoyi Office Continues

The rivalry between the Department of State Security (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the ownership of their office in Ikoyi, Lagos has continued. Earlier this morning, DSS operatives stormed the Lagos office, preventing officials of the anti-graft agency from gaining access into the building. The DSS operatives refused to leave despite dialogue between operatives of both agencies.

An official of the EFCC who spoke with our correspondent on the condition of anonymity, said, “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.” The official added that the matter is not in court and hasn’t caused any fracas before now.

However, a DSS source said, “The office used to be ours, and we have been fighting over it for years now, and the EFCC knows.” The source did not explain why the DSS operatives blocked the EFCC officials from gaining access to the office. The situation has raised concerns about the rivalry between the two agencies and the need for a peaceful resolution of the matter.
