The operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS) have invaded the headquarters of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Lagos Reporters gathered that the security operatives also took over the office of the embattled governor of the apex bank, Godwin Emefiele, who returned to his country in the early hours of Monday.
According to Daily Nigerian, the DSS operatives arrived at the CBN headquarters Monday noon with about 20 vehicles with armed personnel and invaded Emefiele’s office.
The operatives also barred all staff of the bank from gaining access to the office of the apex bank governor.
Lagos Reporters reports that there has been a running battle between the DSS and Emefiele over alleged terrorism financing.
The secret service had earlier sought a court order to arrest Emefiele but has been out of the country for his annual leave which is expiring tomorrow, January 17.
