BREAKING: EFCC arrests DSS DG under Jonathan’s Tenure, Ita Ekpeyong

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a former Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Ita Ekpenyong.

Ekpeyong was the head of DSS under Goodluck Jonathan’s Tenure.

It was gathered that Ekpeyong was arrested in connection with alleged N17billion fraud in the agency. The arrest is part of an ongoing probe of the sacked DG of the agency, Lawal Daura.

The two ex-DSS chiefs were said not to be able to account for the cash in the last three years.

Ekpeyong’s house in Asokoro, Abuja was also raided by the anti-graft commission.
