EFCC Detains Ekpeyong, Former DSS Boss

Mr. Ita Ekpeyong.

BEVERLY HILLS, August 09, (THEWILL) – Mr. Ita Ekpeyong, a former Director-General of the Department of State Services, DSS, has been taken into custody by the EFCC as part of investigations into funds released to the agency under the past Jonathan administration.

Ekpeyong was arrested Thursday afternoon after the EFCC successfully raided his residence in upscale Asokoro, Abuja after DSS officials that had for months blocked EFCC from doing so stood down at the orders of the new DG of the agency, following Acting President Yemi Osinbajo’s intervention.

He is being held at the EFCC’s headquarters, according to government sources.
