DSS releases Bawa, Ex EFCC chair


The Department of State Services (DSS) on its official X handle on Wednesday night has confirmed the release of ex-Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa.

The tweet was signed by Peter Afunanya, the Director of Public Relations and Strategic Communications at the DSS.

“DSS confirms release of former EFCC chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa, a few hours ago (today 25th October, 2023),” the short tweet read.

It could be recalled that in June 2023, the DSS announced that it invited the suspended EFCC chairman over some ‘investigative activities’ concerning him.

Bawa was suspended indefinitely by President Bola Tinubu in the same month for what the president had described as weighty allegations of abuse of office leveled against him.

His suspension was also to allow for a proper investigation into his conduct while in office
