The Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) yesterday, said there was no rift between the Commission and the Department of State Security Service (DSS) as erroneously reported in parts of the media.
According to a statement by the EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujuren, described the report as mischief and unfounded.
Part of the statement reads: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been drawn to a report captioned, DSS, EFCC in fresh face-off over invitation of SSS operatives, which appeared in the Sunday Tribune newspaper of November 5, 2017.
The report written by a certain Taiwo Adisa, painted a picture of an imaginary feud brewing between the Department of State Services (DSS) and EFCC over the alleged invitation of some DSS operatives, which it claimed was an attempt by the Commission to “rubbish the Service since the DSS was not answerable to the EFCC.”
Quoting an anonymous source, it stated: “What are they (EFCC) trying to do, audit our operations or what? Did the Service report any financial infraction to them and call for their intervention? It is just a case of overzealousness and lack of professionalism and we won’t allow that, because what you allow is what will continue.
“If they (EFCC) need any clarification on anything, they should come to our office. We can’t be humiliated by anybody. Never! If this is fallout from the security report officially requested by the National Assembly, then we wish them luck. We stand by our findings.
