There was tension in the Asokoro area of Abuja on Tuesday following a clash between officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
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.
Oke’s wife, who has also been summoned, was identified as the owner of the apartment.
