If I perish, I perish, says Mailafia after honoring DSS third invitation
Obadiah Mailafia, the former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria has been released by the Department of State Services (DSS) after he honored the invitation of the secret police in Jos, the Plateau state capital for the third time.
Recall that the economist turned poltician was first invited by the secret police over his claim of a northern Governor being one of the commanders of Boko Haram.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that Mailafia arrived the DSS office with some of his supporters who held up placards with different inscriptions calling for an end to his interrogation by security agents on Monday September 14.
Speaking at the DSS office, he said he honored the invitation to show that he is a law abiding citizen of Nigeria and to clarify whatever issues the security officials had with him.
“I do not know why I have been invited yet again. This has nothing to do with politics. I spoke as a citizen of this country, who loves the people of this country.
“I am the voice of thousands of voiceless people; Muslim youths have taken me as their voice, Christian youths have taken me as their voice; thousands of people have been killed in this country, in Borno, in Yobe, in Adamawa, in Katsina, in Daura, in Birnin-Gwari, in Zamfara, in Niger, in Southern Kaduna, in Benue, in Plateau, all over the country.
“Even the other day, a pregnant woman was killed in Bayelsa. I am the voice of the holy martyrs, and if I perish, I perish.”
