JUST IN: DSS Issues Fresh Invitation To Mailafiya



The Department of State Security (DSS) has issued a fresh invitation to a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Dr Obadiah Mailafiya.

Naija News reports that the former CBN governor was re-invited for further discussion with the secret police.

Mailafiya is expected to be at the DSS office Jos, Plateau state capital, by 12 noon on Monday, August 17, 2020.

Mailafiya fresh invitation was confirmed to the Nation on phone by his lawyer, Bawa Ba Esq.

Barrister Bawa said the invitation “was a buildup to the previous one, it is a process with security agents. It is normal for further discussion.”

On reason for the fresh invitation, Bawa believed it wouldn’t be anything different from the last encounter, which he said was purely interactive.

Recall that Mailafiya had last Wednesday honored an invitation by the DSS over an interview he granted an Abuja- based Radio FM where he alleged a Northern Governor was Commander of Boko Haram insurgents.

Mailafiya was in the DSS premises for six hours but released unconditionally.

The Nigeria Broadcasting Commission (NBC) also fined the radio station N5 million for airing Mailafiya’s interview.
