It was noted that the refusal of the DSS operatives to allow the EFCC execute valid search and arrest warrants is considered worrisome.
The source said, “I don’t know whether it is within their brief to prevent a law enforcement agency from executing arrest or search warrant on a property belonging to a retired staff of the agency.”
