Obadiah Mailafia, former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has again been invited by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The Nation quoted him as saying the DSS asked him to come to its head office in Jos on Monday.
This is the third time the security agency is inviting Mailafia since he alleged that a northern governor is among the leaders of the Boko Haram insurgent group.
“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 11.00 am,” he was quoted as saying.
He also alleged that his life is in danger, saying he spoke on behalf of the “martyrs” killed in the country over the years.
“I spent over 20 years of my working life abroad as a university teacher, banker and international civil servant with unblemished record,” he reportedly said.
“I have no criminal record — not even a parking ticket. Sadly, it is in my own fatherland that I’m 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.”
