The Department of State Services has invited a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, to its Jos office, following his comment that a Northern governor is the “commander of Boko Haram.”
Mailafia, who is expected to appear before the DSS today by noon, made the statement during his interview with Abuja radio station, 95.1FM, on Monday. During the interview, Mailafia claimed that repentant terrorists told him that a serving northern governor was the leader of the terrorist group, Boko Haram.

He also claimed that the terrorists moved weapons across Nigeria, even during the COVID-19 lockdown.
According to him, part of the plan was to eliminate prominent Nigerians in their homes in urban cities after rural areas have been wiped out.
