The State Security Services (SSS) has invited Obadiah Mailafiya, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), for questioning again.
Mr Mailafiya’s lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Jos.
According to him, Mr Mailafiya is expected to be at the Jos office of the SSS, also known as DSS, on Monday by 12 noon.
Mr Bawa said the invitation was in connection with Mr Mailafiya’s encounter with the SSS last week.
“I believed it wouldn’t be anything different from the last encounter with DSS, which was purely interactive,” he said.
Mr Mailafiya was, last Wednesday, invited by the security outfit following an interview he granted an Abuja based Radio FM.
During the interview, he alleged among other things that a current northern governor was backing Boko Haram insurgents.
Mr Mailafiya was at the SSS office for six hours but later released unconditionally.
Similarly, the National Broadcasting Corporation fined the radio station, Nigeria Info, that conducted the said interview N5 millon for contravening the broadcasting code.
