Breaking! EFCC Puts ex-DSS boss, Kayode Are Under House Arrest

Shooting was heard Wednesday afternoon at the Lagos home of a former Director-General of the Department of State Services, DSS, Lateef Kayode Are. He is said to be currently under house arrest by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in the commission’s ongoing probe into the arms procurement scandal. It is unclear what brought about the gunfire, but sources who passed the scene in Bourdillon road, Ikoyi, confirmed to DAILY POST that they heard shots.

 Are is a retired Nigerian Army Colonel, served as an officer in the Directorate of Military Intelligence up until retirement by General Sani Abacha. Are was appointed as DSS boss by President Olusegun Obasanjo.

He served in that post throughout President Obasanjo’s two terms (1999-2007), and was replaced by Afakiriya Gadzama, who was appointed in August 2007 by late President Umaru Yar’Adua.
