A former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, Wednesday, said during the regime of the Late Gen. Sani Abacha,  insecurity was not as bad as it is today.

Mailafia said this on Channels Television while reacting to the Saturday’s attack on Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom by gunmen.

“This attempt on the life of an executive governor and incumbent of a state is an attempted attack on the entire people of the state. Those who are trying to do this wicked thing need to understand the implication of what they are trying to do.

“If the governor of a state cannot feel safe to go to his farm, how will the ordinary Benue people feel going to their farms?

“This is a very bad precedent. The circumstances in Borno are very different.

“Borno is a war zone; we’ve been living with these evil people for a while but what happened in Benue is totally different and diabolical.

“We don’t know what they are trying to do but this could affect the whole country,” he said.

He alleged that some world powers wanted to destroy Nigeria by turning different parts of the country against each other.
