President Bola Tinubu has ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to vacate the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Ikoyi, Lagos, immediately.

Tinubu on Tuesday evening said if there were issues between the “two important agencies of government”, they would be resolved amicably.

The President said this, according to a statement by the State House.

DSS on Tuesday morning reportedly laid siege on the premises of the EFCC in Lagos.

The DSS high command, however, said it did not barricade the entrance leading to EFCC zonal office in Lagos.

DSS spokesman Peter Afunanya in a statement said the building occupied by the EFCC originally belongs to the secret police.

“It is not correct that the DSS barricaded EFCC from entering its office. No. It is not true. The Service is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility,” Afunanya said.

“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?”

The DSS spokesman said he will be surprised if the EFCC is contesting the ownership of the building.

He explained that “Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is a common knowledge. It is a historical fact. Check it out.

“There is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything. Please do not create any imaginary one. They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight.”
