The Department of State Security Service—DSS, has reportedly invited two brothers of the suspended chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission—EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, for interrogation.
On the 14 of June, Mr Bawa was suspended indefinitely from office by President Tinubu.
The presidency in a statement said the suspension of former anti-corruption czar was to pave way for investigation into his conduct while in office, following allegations of abuse of office.
Since then, Mr Bawa has been held in the detention of the DSS without proper prosecution.
Meanwhile, a reliably source according to Daily Nigerian said that the secret police recently invited Mr Bawa’s two brothers, Yazid Bawa (who also works at the EFCC) and Bashir Bawa (who works at NCC) for questioning.
Also, the security agents seized a bulletproof car and a latest Mercedes-Benz allegedly found with the Bawa brothers.
The secret police also grilled the chief of staff to the embattled EFCC chairman, Hadiza Gamawa, alongside his legal adviser, U.U. Buhari.
The suspects were reportedly detained on August 25 and released a few days later.
