The Department of State Services has invited a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, to its Jos office.
Mailafia confirmed the development to newsmen in Jos on Tuesday.
“Yes, it true. The DSS invited me to appear in their Jos office tomorrow (Wednesday) by noon.”
Mailafia said his invitation was not unconnected to an interview he granted an Abuja radio station, 95.1FM, on Monday.
In the interview, he said repentant terrorists told him that a serving northern governor was the Boko Haram leader.
“Some of us also have our intelligence networks. I have met with some of the bandits; we have met with some of their top commanders – one or two who have repented – they have sat down with us not once, not twice.
“They told us that one of the northern governors is the commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria.
Boko Haram and the bandits are the same.
They have a sophisticated network. During this lockdown, their planes were moving up and down as if there was no lockdown.
“They were moving ammunition, moving money, and distributing them across different parts of the country.”
“They are already in the South, in the rain forests of the South. Also, they are everywhere.
Also, they told us that when they finish these rural killings, they will move to phase two. Phase two is that they will go into urban cities, going from house to house to kill prominent people.
“I can tell you this is the game plan.”
Mailafia, who was the presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the 2019 election, said the terrorists moved weapons even during the COVID-19 lockdown.
