Officials of the State Security Service (SSS) on Tuesday May 30, stopped officials of the anti-graft agency, EFCC, from gaining access to their office in Ikoyi, Lagos state.
According to reports, both agencies have been in a cold war over the ownership of the building currently being occupied by EFCC.
An official of the EFCC who spoke to Punch 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. But it’s been an administrative issue, and the matter is not in court and hasn’t caused any fracas before now. But we don’t understand why they have to block our office and deny our officials access when a new government just came in.”
A DSS official who also spoke on condition of anonymity said;
“The office used to be ours, and we have been fighting over it for years now, and the EFCC knows”
