Officials of the Department of State Security, DSS and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC on Tuesday clashed in Asokoro area of Abuja.
The clash resulted when the anti-graft agency 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.
According to The Cable 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.
As at the time of filing this report efforts made to hear from Mr. Asuquo Epkenyong proved abortive.
