Senator representing Ekiti South, Abiodun Olujimi said the clash between operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has shown that no one is in charge of the government.
The DSS had prevented the anti-graft agency from arresting Ita Ekpeyong, former director-general of DSS, and Ayo Oke, sacked director-general of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) in their houses in Abuja on Tuesday.
While reacting to a motion by Dino Melaye, Olujimi said this was the first time two agencies will clash under a government.
She said, “We will see gross irresponsibility in government” where no one would come in between two agencies.
“The truth is that we cannot go to a house of a security agent, a man who have kept the secrets of Nigeria for so long and just try to arrest him like chicken,” Olujimi said.
“There has to be someone we can hold responsible when two brothers are fighting, the person that is supposed to be held responsible is not doing his work.
“This is the first time we will see gross irresponsibility in government whereby there is on one to come in between two agencies. These two agencies report to one person – the presidency and now we find them fighting on the pages of newspapers, it’s a shame.
“We are calling on Mr President to sit up. We rejected Magu as the chairman of the EFCC and up till today nothing has been said.
