BREAKING: DSS succumbs to pressure, release Mailafia
After a crowd of supporters of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, on Monday besieged the West of Mines office of the Department of State Services to witness the grilling of the ex-CBN top official, the DSS has released him.
While many of the supporters continued to chant solidarity songs as they pressed to gain access to the DSS facility, they were, however, prevented from gaining entrance into the DSS compound.
The PUNCH had reported that Mailafia was invited by the DSS to appear at its office in Jos on Monday.
Recall that DSS had on two previous occasions invited him for questioning. Monday’s invitation is the third within the past four weks. These series of invitations are a fall out of an interview he granted to a radio station in which he accused an unnamed Northern governor of being the leader of Boko Haram.
