Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, has been invited for questioning by the police over the comment he made recently about a Northern governor being the commander of Boko Haram.
Obadiah in an interview with an Abuja based radio station, InfoFM on Monday, August 10, alleged that some repentant bandits spoke with him and other stakeholders in Southern Kaduna and the repentant bandits revealed that a serving governor in one of the Northern states is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria.
”Let me make some revelations because some of us also have our own intelligence network. We have met with some of the bandits, we have met with some of their high commanders, one or two who have repented. They have sat down with us, not once, not twice.
They told us that one of the Northern governors is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria.” he said in the interview
A letter signed by one Umar Mamman Sanda, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Admin) and dated today August 20, instructed Mailafiya to be at the Force Headquarters in Abuja by 11am on Monday August 24.
The Department of State Services had earlier invited Mailafia twice for questioning over his claim.
