The embattled Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, has cried out that his life is in danger after receiving a third invitation by the Department of State Services over his comments about the Northern Governor sponsoring Boko Haram.

The Former CBN Deputy Governor, in a statement in Jos on Friday, described the latest DSS invitation as a political persecution and urged well-meaning people to pray for his safety.

He said, “Dear Comrades, Beloved Brethren, I have once again (for the 3rd time) been ordered to appear before the DSS at their Jos HQ this coming Monday 14th September, at 11.00 am.

“This is in addition to our battle in court, as my lawyer appears before a Jos High Court today Friday the 11th, seeking a restraining order against the DIG Criminal Investigations Department (CID) who are also pursuing me.

“I spent over 20 years of my working life abroad as a university teacher, banker and international civil servant with unblemished record.

“I have no criminal record — not even a parking ticket. Sadly, it is in my own fatherland that I’m being subjected to criminal investigation and such extreme political persecution.
