Is the DSS one of those agencies with bad eggs that President Muhammadu Buhari said would be fished out among the ruling part and government? 

A former Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Ita Ekpeyong, has been arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Mr Ekpeyong is the same man that the DSS operatives guarding his apartment stopped the EFCC from arresting nearly 9 months ago.

He was arrested at his residence, 46, Maman Nasir Street, Asokoro, Abuja, before dusk on Thursday.

Officials of the EFCC had not confrontations this time, with the backing of some armed policemen.
