BREAKING: Mailafia Released As Supporters Besiege DSS Office


Hundreds of supporters of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, on Monday stormed the West of Mines office of the Department of State Services to witness the grilling of the ex-CBN top official.

The supporters, who chanted solidarity songs were, however, prevented from gaining entrance into the DSS compound.

The PUNCH had reported that Mailafia was invited by the DSS to appear at its office in Jos on Monday.

Monday’s invitation is the third in the last one month that the former CBN Deputy Governor was being asked to appear at the DSS office following an interview he granted to a radio station in which he accused an unnamed Northern governor of being the leader of Boko Haram.

Mailafia arrived at the DSS office around 11 am together with his wife, Margaret, and his lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, among others including several clergymen.

He was not released until around 2.55 pm.
