Former CBN Deputy Governor Dr. Obadiah Mailafia has said that his life is in danger.
Speaking to CAPITAL POST, Friday morning, Mailafia disclosed that he has been invited by the DSS (for the 3rd time in less than two months) to appear before it on Monday next week.
The former CBN deputy Governor also believed that some political forces wanted to silence him forever.
“I have once again (for the 3rd time) been ordered to appear before the DSS at their Jos HQ coming Monday 14th September, at 11.00 am. This is in addition to our battle in court, as my lawyer appears before a Jos High Court today Friday the 11th, seeking a restraining order against the DIG Criminal Investigations Department (CID) who are also pursuing me”, Dr. Mailafia said.
He further expressed dismay as he has been subjected to criminal investigation in his homeland for speaking the truth having spent over 20 years teaching abroad with unblemished record.
“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.
Mailafia lamented that It is only in our benighted country that a man who speaks from his conscience can be hounded like a common criminal.
Dr. Mailafia has been in the radar of the security operatives after granting a radio FM intervuew about two months ago and alleged among other allegations that a sitting governor from the North is a commander of deadly Boko Haram.
He was invited twice to DSS and twice he was discharged unconditionally. Thereafter, the criminal investigation unit of the Police asked him to appear before it (about two weeks ago) for criminal investigation. Mailafia declined the invitation and approached the Jos High Court seeking a restrained order against the Police. The matter is coming up today at High Court 5.
