Ita Ekpenyong

Mr Ita Ekpenyong, former Director-General of the Department of State Services, who led the agency from 2010 to 2015, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
Operatives of the DSS had on November 21, 2017 prevented men of the EFCC from arresting Ekpenyong and a former boss of the National Intelligence Agency, Ayodele Oke.
It was gathered that the EFCC operatives, accompanied by over 20 armed policemen, searched the white mansion at 46 Mamman Nasir Street, Asokoro District, Abuja, for about two hours.
It was, however, learnt that no money was found in the building.
It could not be established if any incriminating document was found in the house.
Around 3.20pm, however, Ekpenyong was taken away in a black Toyota Land Cruiser and driven to the head office of the EFCC in the Wuse 2 area of Abuja.
A source at the EFCC said, “The search was not as fruitful as we had expected it to be because the man had 10 months to dispose of all evidences. We are, however, questioning him and we will get more information.”
Ekpenyong was, however, released a few hours later to return on Friday for another round of questioning.
