Former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia has been invited by the Department of State Services (DSS) for the third time over his claim of one of the Northern Governors being a Boko Haram commander.
Mailafia who confirmed the invitation on Thursday September 10, insisted that he spoke on behalf of the “martyrs” killed in the country over the years.
He also raised an alarm of his life being in danger, while also alleging that he has been subjected to criminal investigation and extreme political persecution.
The economist turned politician said;
“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.”
