Ex-Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Ita Ekpeyong has been arrested.
He was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) operatives at his Abuja residence on Thursday, August 9th, 2018.
We gathered that the EFCC operatives stormed his house at 46, Maman Nasir Street, Asokoro, Abuja in three buses and some patrol vehicles accompanied by over 20 armed policemen.
The operatives then searched the mansion for over two hours before leaving at 3.20pm.
It would be recalled that the arrest occurred barely 10 months after the DSS under the leadership of the recently sacked DG, Lawal Daura, prevented EFCC men from searching or arresting Ekpeyong despite a court order.
