In response to recent media reports, the Department of State Services (DSS) has clarified that it did not barricade the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from accessing its office in Lagos. The DSS firmly denies these claims, emphasizing that it is simply occupying its own premises to carry out its official duties and responsibilities.
Contrary to insinuations in the media, there is no ongoing controversy surrounding the ownership of 15A Awolowo Road. The DSS questions whether the EFCC has ever contested the ownership of the building and expresses surprise at the suggestion. Awolowo Road has historical significance as the former headquarters of the National Security Organization (NSO), the predecessor of the DSS. This fact is widely known and easily verifiable.
The DSS categorically states that there is no rivalry or conflict between the agency and the EFCC. On the contrary, they are acknowledged as valuable partners working together for the betterment of the nation. The DSS urges the public not to entertain any false narratives regarding a supposed feud between the two organizations.
