A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, has on Friday, revealed that his life is in danger, because certain political forces are bent on silencing him, .
He had been questioned by the Department of State Security Services, DSS, over a radio interview, where he alleged that a serving Northern Governor is the Leader of Boko Haram terrorists in the country.
According to him: “I have once again (for the 3rd time) been ordered to appear before the DSS, at their Jos HQ, this coming Monday, 14th September, at 11:00am.
“This is in addition to our battle in court, as my Lawyer appears before a Jos High Court on Friday, September 11, seeking a restraining order against the DIG Criminal Investigations Department (CID) who are also pursuing me.”
He said that he is disgusted for being subjected to criminal investigation in Nigeria, 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 am 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.”
