Former Presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the 2019 presidential election, Obadiah Mailafia, has been released by the Department of State Services after six hours of questioning.
A lot of his supporters were outside the Jose office of the DSS while the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria was grilled.
Naija News had earlier reported that DSS invited Obadiah to appear at its office on Wednesday following his comment where he accused a northern governor of being a commander of Boko Haram.
It was reported that the former CBN Deputy Governor arrived at the DSS office located on West of Mines Street around 12:30 pm in an ash-coloured Range Rover vehicle marked Abuja 843 LX.
He was taken into the premises alongside his lawyer, Pius Akubo, SAN, while others who came with him in solidarity were barred from entering the premises.
Those, who were denied entrance, were later joined by placard-carrying protesters who demanded the release of the former CBN deputy governor.
