Police invite Mailafia to Abuja

Obadiah Mailaifa

The police have invited a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria Obadiah Mailafia to its Abuja office on Monday.

The invitation is believed to be connected to his statement on a radio station that a northern governor was Boko Haram commander.

Mailafia had twice been quizzed by the Department of State Services (DSS) over his statement.

However, the police in a letter did not state the reason for the invitation.

The letter was signed by the Deputy Commissioner of Police (admin) Umar Sanda on behalf of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Force Criminal Investigation Department, Abuja.

In the document dated August 20, the police asked Mailafia to be at its headquarters on August 24 by 11 am.

The letter stated that we “wish to inform you that this office is investigating a case in which your name featured prominently.

“In light of the above, you are invited to in an interview with the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, FCID Abuja, through the undersigned on Monday, August 24, 2020 by 11am at Room 407, 3rd Floor, FCID Complex, Area 10, Abuja.

“Accept the assurances of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, FCID.”

Mailafia was the presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the last general election.
