PRAY FOR ME, OBADIAH MAILAFIA PLEADS AS DSS INVITES HIM FOR QUESTIONING FOR THE THIRD TIME
Obadiah Mailafia, a former deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and a former Presidential aspirant on Friday, begged for prayers claiming his life is in danger.
Mailafia made the plea on Friday, September 11, following a third invite from the Department of Security Services.
"Dear comrades, beloved brethren, I have once again (for the 3rd time) been ordered to appear before the DSS at their Jos headquarters this Monday, September 14 at 11:00 am. This is in addition to our battle in court as my lawyer appears before a Jos High Court today, seeking a restraining order against the DIG Criminal Investigations Department, who are also pursuing me.
"I spent over 20 years of my working life abroad as a university teacher, banker and international civil servant with unblemished record. 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. It is only in our benighted country that a man who speaks from his conscience can be hounded like a common criminal. I'm a believer in nonviolence. Please, no-one should throw even a little stone on my behalf."
Recall that on Monday, August 10, Mailafia Obadiah claimed that a northern governor was the overall Commander of Boko Haram and the government has a hand in the killings in the southern Kaduna.
