There are people in this country that is beyond the EFCC arrest. The street of Asokoro district of Abuja  was thrown into confusion yesterday when armed guards of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) and the Department of State Security (DSS) prevented officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) from arresting their former bosses residing in the area.
ODOGWU MEDIA gathered that former director of DSS, Ita Ekpeyong and former head of NIA Ayo Oke were to be arrested by men of economic financial crime commission but met strong resistant by armed officials of DSS and NIA at their homes on Mamman Nasir Street in Asokoro district of Abuja.
According to eyewitness who confirmed the incident he said that the the street of Asokoro experienced a tall traffic as a result of the stand off between armed securities.
Meanwhile, armed plain-clothed security personnel have also mounted strategic positions on the street. Reporters were prevented from getting to the end of the street around 3pm yesterday, while efforts to access the street from two adjoining streets were rebuffed by armed mobile policemen.
Residents of the area, who tried to find their way to their homes and those visiting the area expressed frustration at the closure of the street.
Wilson Uwujaren, spokesman of the EFCC, was not available for comments, as he neither picked his call nor replied text messages sent to him.
This is not the first time the DSS and EFCC would be involved in a public spat. The Senate had based its non-confirmation of Ibrahima Magu, acting chairman of the EFCC, on a report of the DSS
