The Department of State Services (DSS) said that it is not correct that the DSS barricaded the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) from entering its office.
In a statement issued by its Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, the Service said it is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility, pointing out that there is no controversy over the ownership of the building.
“By the way, there is no controversy over No. 15A Awolowo Road as being insinuated by the Media. Did the EFCC tell you it is contesting the ownership of the building? I will be surprised if it is contesting the ownership,” Afunanya said.
“Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is common knowledge. It is a historical fact. Check it out.”
The Public Relations Officer said that there is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything, advising the media not to create any imaginary one.
According to him, “They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight.”
