EFCC At War With DSS – Junaid

- Says There’s Terrible Confusion In NIA

A second republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed has alleged that there is internal strife between the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Department of State Services (DSS).

He further alleged that there is “terrible confusion” at the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).


According to him, the issue has soiled the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led All Progressives Congress fight against corruption.

Speaking on Channels Television where the score card of President Buhari’s three-year-old administration was assessed, Junaid said, “Today, the DG of DSS is not on speaking terms with the person he is supposed to coordinate some of these things with.

“The EFCC is at war with the DSS. The NIA is in terrible confusion that the DG does not even go to his office, he has a new office in the presidency.”

But Keyamo described his claims as lies and unfounded. He said, “It is not true. These are gentlemen I know, they talk,” he said, adding that: “These are things we push into the public space that we are not sure of. What facts do you have to back it up?”


Keyamo said the misunderstandings between the security agencies is only a “difference in perspective”, adding that it is a “credit” to the government.

“The president allows the agencies to do their work. The SSS is not looking at the body language of the president that he has appointed this person, so I will cover whatever he has done because the president wants him to be in office,” he said.

Junaid featured on the programme alongside Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili and spokesman of Buhari’s re-election campaign, Festus Keyamo.
