Former Deputy Governor,Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Dr Obadiah Mailafia,yesterday, for the third time ina month, honoured an invitation by the Department of State Services, DSS, at their office in Jos, the Plateau State capital.
Our correspondent reports that Mailafia, who was the 2019 presidential candidate of African Democratic Congress, ADC,arrived the Jos office of the DSS at 11:30am accompanied by his lawyer, YakubuBawa, his wife, Margaret, pastors and elders.
He was invited over an interview he granted a radio station where he alleged that a current northern governor is a member of Boko Haram insurgents.
Speaking to newsmen before entering the office, Mailafia said the interview he granted prompted the multiple invitations and had nothing to do with politics.
“I am here for the third time to appear before the DSS. I do not know why I have been invited yet again. They invited me the first time, I honoured their invitation; they asked me to go and there has been no incident since I did my interview.
“They then invited me again for the second time and as a law abiding citizen, I dutifully and respectfully honoured that invitation; now again they have invited me for the third time through my lawyer and I have today decided as a law-abiding citizen to honour their invitation.
“Let me say that this has nothing to do with politics, I spoke in the interview as a citizen of this country who loves the people, I am the voice of thousands of voiceless people, Muslim youths have taken me as their voice, Christian youths have taken me as their voice.
“Thousands of innocent people have been killed in this country in Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Katsina, Kaduna, Niger, Southern Kaduna, Benue and Plateau State.”
He said there are killing of innocent citizens all over the country. Even the other day a pregnant woman was killed in Bayelsa. I am the voice of the holy martyrs and if I perish, I perish,” he declared.
