EFCC Chairman, Bawa in Aso Rock, in closed door meeting with President Tinubu

President Bola Tinubu is in a meeting with the chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The agenda of the meeting could not be ascertained but it would be recalled there was a situation, just about 24 hours ago at the Lagos offices of the EFCC where the operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) barricaded the building.

It was believed the topic of the ugly incident at the Lagos offices of the EFCC might have featured in topics the President discussed with Ba’wa.

Tinubu on Tuesday evening ordered the DSS to immediately withdraw its men and vehicles from the EFCC offices, instructing that whatever misunderstanding might exist between both agencies be amicably resolved.


A statement by the presidential spokesman, Tunde Rahman, on the debacle said: “President Bola Tinubu has directed the Department of State Security Service to immediately vacate the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Ikoyi, Lagos.

“The President gave the directive when reports that DSS officials stormed the EFCC office located on Awolowo Road, Ikoyi, Lagos on Tuesday, preventing officials of the anti-graft agency from accessing their work place, was brought to his attention.

“The President said if there were issues between the two important agencies of government, they would be resolved amicably.”
