The anti-graft agency had stormed the residences of Ayo Oke, sacked director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), and Ita Ekpeyong, the immediate past director-general of the DSS, in a bid to arrest both men.

But the operatives guiding the two top security officials resisted the move, resulting in a heated argument.

The EFCC had invited Oke for questioning in connection with the $43 million found in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.
