Mailafia: Southern/Middle-Belt alliance demands independent autopsy Late former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia By Abdullateef Salau Sun Sep 19 2021 The Southern and Middle-Belt Alliance (SaMBA) has expressed shock and sadness over the sudden death of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia. The late financial expert died in Abuja after a brief illness. ASUP suspends strike at Federal Polytechnic Oko SaMBA, in a statement signed by its spokesman, Rwang Pam Jnr., on Sunday evening, called for a transparent and full investigation into the cause of Mailafia’s death and an independent autopsy on his body before burial. The statement said, “We are shocked to hear of the demise of former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr Obadiah Mailafia this morning, of the 19th September 2021 at the National Hospital, Abuja. “Dr Obadiah Mailafia was a freedom fighter for the people of middle belt and all oppressed people across the country. “He always spoke truth to people in power, at risk of his career and life. “The late financial expert will forever be in the memory of the people of Southern and Middle-Belt of Nigeria for his outspokenness and courage.” SAMBA recalled that on the 14th September 2021 which marked exactly one year of Dr Mailafia’s invitation by Nigeria’s security agency (DSS) over an interview he had granted to a radio station in which he made a wide range of accusations against named individuals for sponsoring terrorist activities, random killings and banditry ravaging the middle belt region of Nigeria. The late Mailafia had joined partisan politics in 2018 amidst the rise of killings in Southern Kaduna. Despite losing the elections, he maintained his ardent stance as a government critic and severally got into trouble with the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. One of such incidences was when he alleged that a Northern governor was a Boko Haram commander. This caused a ripple and after receiving an invitation for “questioning” by the Nigeria Police Force, he recanted his statement. “Regardless, in his last engagement with SAMBA on Saturday, 28th August 2021, when he spoke on the theme: Political alignment between the South and the Middle Belt towards 2023 elections via a zoom meeting hosted by Elombah Television, late Dr Mailafia expressed fear for his life but said he will not stop saying the truth. “We, therefore, call for an immediate, transparent and full investigation into the cause of his death, as well as an independent autopsy to be carried out on his body before his burial,” the group said.
