The Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu, has vowed to proceed with the planned arrest of a former Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mr. Ita Ekpeyong; and a former DG of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ambassador Ayo Oke.

Magu declared this on  Wednesday while speaking with the State House Correspondents,  after he attending the inauguration of the Committee on Recovery of Stolen Assets by President Muhammadu Buhari at State House, Abuja.

He insisted that the law will take its course as he stressed that nobody, no matter how highly placed, is above the law.

He revealed that the agency has concrete evidence against the former heads of DSS and NIA declaring that the law would take its course.

Ita is being investigated for offences bordering on alleged theft and diversion of public funds in the arms deal saga involving a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).

In the same vein,  Oke who was recently sacked by President Buhari is being investigated for allegedly stashing away N13 billion in an apartment in Ikoyi, Lagos.

The armed guards of the NIA and DSS, on Tuesday, in Asokoro district, Abuja, prevented officials of the EFCC from arresting their former bosses residing in the area.
