The Department of State Security (DSS) has slammed a former Deputy of Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Obadiah Mailafia over his comment that a Northern Governor is sponsoring terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The security agency also berated the former development banker, saying he is “playing to the gallery.”
Recall that Mailafia in an interview with a radio station alleged that a Northern Governor was the commander of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
He was subsequently invited by the Plateau State office of the DSS and interrogated for six hours and released.
Mailafia while speaking to newsmen after his visit to the DSS’ office said he stood by his allegations.
Reacting to this development, the DSS Public Relations Officer, Dr Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Friday, said Mailafia “apologised profusely” for his comments during questioning.
