(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Following a viral statement made by the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, that a “Northern governor is the commander of Boko Haram” and his subsequent invitation by the DSS, Nigerians have gone on social media to express their views.
African Examiner recalls that Mailafia, while speaking with an Abuja radio station, 95.1FM, disclosed that Boko Haram is plotting to start a civil war in Nigeria by 2022 and part of the plan was to eliminate prominent Nigerians in their homes in Urban cities.
The former deputy director also accused the government of president Buhari culpable in the South Kaduna killings.
He had said: “The body language of this administration shows clearly that they have a hand in the killings, no doubt about it.”
The DSS have invited Mailafia to buttress more on his claims and this have sparked reactions from Nigerians in the micro-blogging platform.
