Peter Afunanya, public relations officer of the State Security Service (SSS), says the security agency is not fighting with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over Lagos property. 

Afunanya in a statement on Tuesday said the reports that SSS officers barricaded EFFC’s office and prevented entrance were untrue.

“The attention of the Department of State Services (DSS) has been drawn to some media reports that it barricaded the EFCC from entering its Lagos office.

“It is not correct that the DSS barricaded EFCC from entering its office. No. It is not true. The Service is only occupying its own facility where it is carrying out its official and statutory responsibility”, Afunanya said.

“By the way, there is no controversy over No 15A Awolowo Road as being insinuated by the Media. Did the EFCC tell you it is contesting the ownership of the building? I will be surprised if it is contesting the ownership.

“Awolowo Road was NSO headquarters. SSS/DSS started from there. It is a common knowledge. It is a historical fact. Check it out.

“There is no rivalry between the Service and the EFCC over and about anything. Please do not create any imaginary one. They are great partners working for the good of the nation. Dismiss any falsehood of a fight”, end of the statement.
