EFCC Releases Ex-DSS Boss, Ita Ekpeyong

A former Director-General of the Department of State Services, Mr Ita Ekpeyong has regained freedom following EFCC arrest.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released a former Director-General of the Department of State Services, Mr Ita Ekpeyong, hours after his arrest.

EFCC officials supported by armed policemen had arrested Mr Ekpeyong on Thursday in his residence in Asokoro, Abuja.

Details about the reason for his arrest are sketchy but the arrest came after his successor Mr Lawal Daura, was fired by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

In November 2017, officials of the DSS believed to be acting under the directives of Daura prevented EFCC officials from arresting him.

At the time, he was reportedly wanted by the anti-graft agency for his alleged role in the arms scandal involving a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retired).

He served as the head of the DSS from 2010 to 2015.
