The operatives then searched the mansion for over two hours before leaving at 3.20pm.
It was observed that no cash was recovered.
The raid occurred less than 10 months after the DSS under the leadership of the sacked DG, Lawal Daura, prevented EFCC men from searching or arresting Ekpenyong despite a court order.
Sources told our correspondent that the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, was the one who ordered the raid following a meeting with the acting Chairman of the EFCC, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, and the new DSS boss, Matthew Seyifa on Wednesday.
