A second republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed, has claimed that there is infighting between the nation’s security and anti-graft agencies, a development he said has torn the current government under President Muhammadu Buhari apart.
He said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is “at war” with the Department of State Services (DSS), and that there is “terrible confusion” at the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).
Mohammed made this claime on Monday while speaking on Channels Television. President Muhammadu Buhari’s three-year-old administration was assessed during the programme.
He featured on the programme alongside Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Finance, and Fetus Keyamo, spokesman of Buhari’s re-election campaign.
Mohammed said the “infighting” has destroyed the current administration’s fight against corruption.
“Today, the DG of DSS is not on speaking terms with the person he is supposed to coordinate some of these things with,” he said.
“The EFCC is at war with the DSS. The NIA is in terrible confusion that the DG does not even go to his office, he has a new office in the presidency.”
