The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited Dr Obadiah Mailafia, a former Deputy  Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) for questioning again.

Yakubu Bawa, Mailafia’s lawyer confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Jos.

According to him, Mailafia is expected to be at the Jos office of the DSS on Monday by 12 noon.

Bawa said the invitation was in connection with Mailafia’s encounter with the DSS last week.

“I believed it wouldn’t be anything different from the last encounter with DSS, which was purely interactive,” he said.

Daily Trust reported that Mailafia was last Wednesday invited by the security outfit following an interview he granted to an Abuja based Radio station.

During the interview, he alleged among other things that a current northern governor was backing Boko Haram insurgents.

Mailafia was in the DSS facility for six hours but was 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.
