#Insecurity: Mailafia Insists Northern Governor Is Boko Haram’s Leader


By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Ex-Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, has refused to recant his earlier claim during a recent interview.that a Northern Governor is the leader of Boko Haram, the Islamist terror group in the country’s north-east.

Mailafia disclosed this on Wednesday, during a media chat, following a six-hour meeting with the Department of State Services (DSS) in their Jos, Plateau State office.

Excerpts of his statement read: “Yes, all of those words were made by me. If the whole of the 55 minutes was played out, the context of what I said would have become clearer.

“This is not the time to disown what I said. Yes, I was privy to some very sensitive information which all statesmen are entitled to have by virtue of our public roles.

“I know that I should have corroborated some of the information I received, but perhaps some of it was uncorroborated. I was in no position to follow them to the camp to corroborate what was going on.”

Mailafia added that “I must never give up on Nigeria, if need be, I will die for Nigeria.”
