A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafiya, has honoured the invitation by the State Security Service (SSS) for the second time.
Mr Mailafiya, the presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) in the 2019 general elections, arrived at the Jos office of the SSS at noon on Monday, and was released less than an hour later.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalled that Mr Mailafiya was, last Wednesday, invited by the security outfit following an interview he granted to an Abuja based Radio FM station.
In the interview, Mr Mailafiya alleged among other things that a current northern governor was backing Boko Haram insurgents.
Speaking to journalists, Mr Mailafiya’s lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, said the invitation was in line with the last one.
