A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Obadiah Mailafia has received a third invitation from the Department of State Services (DSS) in less than two months.

He was asked to appear on Monday, September 14 by 11am.

Mailafia told newsmen on Friday that his life was in danger because certain political forces were bent on silencing him.

He had been questioned by the DSS over a radio interview where he alleged a Northern Governor was Boko Haram commander.

He said he was disgusted for being subjected to criminal investigation in Nigeria for speaking the truth having spent over 20 years teaching abroad with unblemished record.

Mailafia has been on the radar of security operatives after granting a radio interview where he alleged a Northern Governor is a commander of Boko Haram terrorists.

He was invited twice to DSS and released unconditionally.

Thereafter, the criminal investigation unit of the Police asked him to appear for criminal investigation.

Mailafia declined and approached the Jos High Court seeking a restraining order against the Police.

The matter comes up at High Court 4, Jos on Friday.
