DSS summons Mailafia over claims Northern Governor is Boko Haram Commander, ties between terrorists, bandits

  • Mailafia alleged terrorists in Southern Nigeria, ready to ignite second civil war
  • Repentant terrorists revealed that a serving Northern Governor is Boko Haram leader

Following his interview in a radio programme whose video has since gone viral and sparked worries about the spate of insecurity in Nigeria, the Department of State Security (DSS) has summoned the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr. Obadiah Mailafia for a chat in its Jos Office in Plateau State.

Mailafia was the Presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the 2019 election,

Dr Mailafia had alleged that repentant Boko Haram terrorists told him that a Northern Governor is a Commander of Boko Haram and that there was a plan by the terrorists to ignite a civil war in 2022.

The summons was the subject of various WhatsApp platforms all through Tuesday night and this Wednesday morning.

One of the message read: “Dear Middle Belters, we should come out in solidarity of our father and illustrious son of the struggle, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, he is being invited by DSS Headquarters, Plateau State, Jos, tomorrow at 12:noon over his Radio interview in Lagos few days (ago) which he boldly pointed out that one of the Governors of Northern Nigeria is a commander of Boko Haram. Please let nothing happen to our leader. An injury to is an injury to all. Solidarity forever.God bless”.

Though Dr Malaifa did not mention the name of the Governor, a source said that he “did not mention any name because those he said gave the information did not give him any name. Also, if you analyse that cut-out, he merely suggested that the bad guys will precipitate a situation that is intended to lead to civil conflict and (he) mentioned it because he didn’t want a civil conflict.”

The former Deputy Governor of CBN had said in the video: “Some of us also have our intelligence networks. I have met with some of the bandits; we have met with some of their high commanders – one or two who have repented – they have sat down with us not once, not twice.

“They told us that one of the northern governors is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram and the bandits are one and the same. They have a sophisticated network. During this lockdown their planes were moving up and down as if there was no lockdown.

“They were moving ammunition, moving money, and distributing them across different parts of the country.”

“They are already in the South, in the rain forests of the South. They are everywhere. They told us that when they finish these rural killings, they will move to phase two. Phase two is that they will go into urban cities, going from house to house killing prominent people.

“I can tell you this is the game plan.

“By 2022, they want to start a civil war in Nigeria. Don’t joke with what I am saying I have a PhD from Oxford University. I am a central banker, we don’t talk nonsense. I have this from the highest authority, some of the commanders of Boko Haram.”
