In a letter signed by Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Administration, Umar Mamman Sanda, the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia has been summoned to appear for interrogation on Monday.
He was asked to report at the Criminal Investigation Department, Area 10, Garki, Abuja.
The letter indicated that Mailafia was being investigated in a case that involved him.
The letter which was issued on behalf of the Deputy Inspector General Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja, stated: “I refer to my letter No CR: 3000/X/FHQ/ABJ/Vol.244/245 dated 15th August, 2020 on the above subject matter and wish to inform you that this office is investigating a case in which your name featured prominently.
“In the light of the above, you are invited for an interview with the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Force Criminal Investigations Department, Abuja through the undersigned on Monday 24th August, 2020 by 11am at Room 407, 3rd Floor, Force Criminal Investigations Department complex, Area 10, Abuja.
“Accept the assurances of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigations Department high regard, please.”
Confirming receipt of the letter, Mailafia said, he would honour the invitation.
He said: “Yes, the police were in my house this afternoon. At first, they looked intimidating, but they told me they brought a letter. I am being summoned to be at the Force Headquarters on Monday for criminal investigation.”
Mailafia was recently invited twice by the Plateau State Office of the Department of State Services (DSS) for questioning following his allegation in a radio interview that a northern governor is a Boko Haram commander.
Meanwhile, there were agitations from various quarters whether Dr. Mailafia should be prosecuted or not.
Moreso, the Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) has slammed the Radio station in Lagos to the tune of N5 million for allowing an interview considered as inflammatory on their platform.
