Buhari Orders SSS To Invites Dr. Obadiah Mailafia Over His Interview, Alleging That A Northern Governor Is A Boko Haram Commander
The State Security Service (SSS) has invited Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria over comments he made on ‘Morning Crossfire’ programme on Nigeria Info Abuja 95.1FM on Monday, where he alleged that a Northern Governor is a commander of the terrorist group, Boko Haram.
This invitation is sequel to his comments in the interview he granted where he remarked amongst others, as follows:
“Some of us also have our intelligence networks. I have met with some of the bandits; we have met with some of their high commanders – one or two who have repented – they have sat down with us not once, not twice.
“They told us that one of the northern governors is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram and the bandits are one and the same. They have a sophisticated network. During this lockdown their planes were moving up and down as if there was no lockdown.
“They were moving ammunition, moving money, and distributing them across different parts of the country.”
Meanwhile, a source disclosed to TheNigeriaLawyer (TNL) that the ex-Deputy Governor has been invited by the DSS in Jos for questioning over these remarks, tomorrow, 12th August, 2020.
