The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has released Mr. Ita Ekpeyong, the former Director-General of Department of State Security (DSS) over his suspected involvement in the National Assembly siege on Tuesday.

Mr. Ekpeyong was arrested on Thursday afternoon following a raid of his Abuja home by anti-graft detectives.

He was moved to the EFCC headquarters in Abuja for questioning, multiple sources said. He was subsequently hours later.

According to Premium Times, Ekpeyong was released after the EFCC agents realised he was unable to provide much information about the controversial former DSS director, Lawal Daura.

Mr Daura was himself arrested after being sacked by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday afternoon.

He was immediately taken into custody by federal authorities, but was freed on administrative grounds and his passports confiscated on Wednesday night.

Spokesperson for the EFCC declined comments on the development Thursday night when contacted
