Files and flash drives containing information about former Nigerian governors under probe are reportedly missing after an alleged secret raid of the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) by it’s sister agency, the Department of State Services ( DSS)
After the raid, EFCC personnel were also instructed not to mention anything concerning the raid to members of the public.
According to SaharaReporters, the recent raid on EFCC offices – first in Ikoyi, Lagos and later in Abuja – have been more political than they were made to look.
It was also gathered that the DSS was working in the interest of someone “very important” to President Bola Tinubu.
Apparently, the DSS had warned the EFCC to stay away from the political cases it’s handling.
A security source told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that the DSS operatives carted away files and flash drives containing sensitive information about former governors, ministers and senators under investigation during the alleged raid.
Sources revealed that the raids were political with the carting away of files and flash drives related to the probe of former governors, senators and ministers.
The source said “The DSS has told EFCC to concentrate on non-political cases for now.
“During the secret raid of EFCC offices in Abuja and Lagos, the DSS carted away files and flash disks of ex-governors, senators and ministers under investigation.”
