Obadiah Mailafia, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), has asked Nigerians to pray for him after receiving a third invitation from the Department of State Security (DSS) over his comment on Boko Haram insurgency in the North.

Recall that Mailafia had claimed in an interview on a radio station programme that a state governor was a commander of terror group, Boko Haram. Since his comments went viral, the former CBN deputy governor had been invited twice for questioning.

However, in a statement on Friday, Mailafia who received another invitation from the secret police to appear at its headquarters by 11:00 a.m. on Monday, alarmed Nigerians that his life is in danger.

Describing the DSS invitation as a political persecution, the ex-CBN deputy governor alleged some powerful political forces want to prevent him from speaking the truth by eliminating him.

“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 14th September at 11:00 a.m. 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,” he said.

“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.”
