Third DSS invitation was irrelevant — Mailafia tells supporters

Boko Haram: I didn’t know my statement will go viral — Mailafia

Supporters of Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, stormed the West of Mines office of the DSS office on Monday to witness the grilling of the ex-CBN top official, Daily Times gathered.

Mailafia was invited by the DSS on Monday for the third time in one month to appear at its office in Jos following an interview he granted to a radio station in which he accused an unnamed Northern governor of being the leader of Boko Haram.

Mailafia arrived at the DSS office around 11 am together with his wife, Margaret, and his lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, among others including several clergymen.

He was not released until around 2.55 pm.

Addressing his supporters after his release, Mailafia condemned his latest invitation by the DSS, saying that such an invitation was uncalled for.

He insisted that the killings in Southern Kaduna and other parts of the country must stop.

Mailafia said, “Thank you all for being here. Many have said the worst things and nobody invited them. I hope this will be the last time I will be invited to the DSS office. All that I am saying is that the killings must stop.”
