The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr Obadiah Mailafia, has cried out to Nigerians to pray for him after recieving the 3rd invite from the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
Recall that Mailafia has stated in an interview he granted Nigerian Info FM, that a current Northern Governor is the commander of the Boko Haram terrorist group and that the group were during the covid-19 imposed nationwide lockdown, moving arms and ammunitions round the country.
Consequently, Mailafia has been facing some questioning and interrogation by the DSS.
In a statement on Friday, Mailafia claimed that his life is in danger and that some politicians want to silence him forever for speaking the truth.
According to Mailafia, He was asked by DSS to appear again on Monday, September 14 by 11am.
He said, “Dear comrades, beloved brethren, I have once again (for the 3rd time) been ordered to appear before the DSS at their Jos headquarters this Monday 14th September at 11:00am. This is in addition to our battle in court as my lawyer appears before a Jos High Court today, seeking a restraining order against the DIG Criminal Investigations Department, who are also pursuing me.
“I spent over 20 years of my working life abroad as a university teacher, banker and international civil servant with unblemished record. I have no criminal record not even a parking ticket. Sadly, it is in my own fatherland that I’m being subjected to criminal investigation and such extreme political persecution. Please, pray for me. I have reasons to believe that my life is in danger and that some powerful political forces want to silence me forever for speaking the truth.
“For speaking on behalf of the holy martyrs of thousands of innocent children, women, elderly and youths that have been killed in our beloved country. It is only in our benighted country that a man who speaks from his conscience can be hounded like a common criminal. I’m a believer in nonviolence. Please, no-one should throw even a little stone on my behalf.”
Also, the criminal investigation unit of the Police asked him to appear for criminal investigation.
Mailafia declined and approached the Jos High Court seeking a restraining order against the Police.
The matter comes up at High Court 4, Jos on Friday.
