Dramatic Twist: Suspended EFCC Chairman Bawa Summoned by DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited the suspended Chairman of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa.

“Bawa arrived a few hours ago. The invitation relates to some investigative activities concerning him, ” said a statement by the DSS Public Relations Officer, Peter Afunanya, on Wednesday evening.

Abdulrasheed Bawa, the recently suspended chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has been invited for questioning by the Department of State Services (DSS) over an ongoing investigation into his conduct while in office. Peter Afunanya, the Public Relations Officer of DSS, made this known in a statement.

This development follows President Bola Tinubu’s approval of Bawa’s indefinite suspension “to allow for proper investigation into his conduct while in office”.

The news of Bawa’s invite from the DSS comes on the heels of President Bola Tinubu’s approval of his indefinite suspension to enable an investigation into allegations of abuse of office levelled against him.

According to a statement by the Director of Information at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, the action follows “weighty” allegations of abuse of office levelled against him.

“Mr Bawa has been directed to immediately handover the affairs of his office to the Director, Operations in the Commission, who will oversee the affairs of the Office of the Chairman of the Commission pending the conclusion of the investigation,” the statement said.

The Director of Information at the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, explained that the decision to suspend Bawa indefinitely was made based on the “weighty” allegations of abuse of office levelled against him. He was instructed to handover the affairs of his office to the Director, Operations in the Commission, who would oversee the office of the Chairman of the Commission pending the conclusion of the investigation.
