President Bola Tinubu has directed the Department of State Security Service, DSS to immediately vacate the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Ikoyi, EFCC Lagos.
The directive was conveyed in a statement issued by Tunde Rahman who acted as his spokesman before his emergence as president.
The President gave the directive when reports that DSS officials stormed the EFCC office located on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos on Tuesday, preventing officials of the anti-graft agency from accessing their work place, was brought to his attention.
The President said if there were issues between the two important agencies of government, they would be resolved amicably.
The DSS has not responded to the latest directive from President Tinubu to vacate the offices of the EFCC following the early morning siege. Sources in both agencies said there has been an ongoing rivalry between both agencies over the ownership of the building.
. reports that the Awolowo Road offices now occupied by the EFCC was once the headquarters of the Nigerian Security Organisation, NSO, and famously came to national attention for its alleged human rights violations after General Muhammadu Buhari was removed from office by fellow generals led by General Ibrahim Babangida.
