BY CHAMBERLAIN ODEY, JOS – Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Dr Obadiah Mailafiya, has honoured the second invitation within a week by the Department of State Services (DSS).
Dr Mailafiya in company of his wife arrived the premises of the DSS in Jos at 12:20pm for a ‘chat’ in a space of five days.
Last week Wednesday, Mailafiya was quizzed by the secret police for almost seven hours in connection with his claim earlier in a radio interview that a serving governor in the Northern part of the country is one of the commanders of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists group.
Arriving the DSS premises on Monday afternoon chauffeur-driven in an ash-colour Land Rover SUV with registration number ABC 843 LX, accompanied by his wife, Margaret, and his lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, Mailafiya told anxious and prying reporters that he came to the DSS in response to another summons he received from the Service over the weekend.
Mailafiya, who was looking robust, confident and unruffled, maintained that as “a good citizen”, he had to honour the summons, saying and reassuring ultimately that “it will be well with Nigeria”.
Meanwhile, his supporters and welding wishers and the media in Plateau are maintaining a stay around the DSS premises as interrogation goes on behind cameras.
