Southern Kaduna people condemn continuous invitation of Dr Mailafia by security agencies

2 weeks ago

The Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, SOKAPU, has expressed concern on the continuous invitation of the former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, to the Plateau State office of the Department of State Service, DSS,

Mailafia has reportedly been invited by the service to appear before it on Monday, September 14, 2020, for another round of questioning,

The union noted that there are several instances where security agents have developed cold feet in inviting top officials for a chat with a view to staving off a further bloodbath.

Why has it remained impossible for DSS to invite MACBAN officials who had always claimed responsibility for attacks, claiming such attacks as revenge or reprisals?” SOKAPU asked.

In a statement issued by the SOKAPU National President, Jonathan Asake and made available to WAPLOADED on Sunday, the union said, “We are worried that this is the third time that the nation’s secret police is inviting Dr Obadiah to appear in its Jos office over a radio interview he granted. It is now undoubtedly obvious that these series of summons are aimed at not only intimidating the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) but also throwing him into an abyss of frightening uncertainties in a bid to force him into silence.”

The statement noted that it is not the first time a prominent Nigerian would come up with what Dr Mailafia came up with in his radio interview.

“That the DSS has continued to be on the trail of this distinguished son of Southern Kaduna who is a national patriot reveals that an unsavoury plot orchestrated by certain elements in the security agencies to coerce him into silence may be in the offing,” the statement alleged.

The statement explained that Dr. Mailafia has every reason to warn against any further threats to the country, real or perceived, stressing that presently, over 101 communities of Southern Kaduna where he hails from are literally captured, the natives chased away and are now occupied by armed Fulani militia, where the native owners of these lands have been living in dehumanizing conditions as IDPs, mostly in neighbouring communities. What has the DSS and the Nigeria state done about it? Nothing!

The Union according to the statement said they are in total agreement with the disclosures made by the erudite scholar and technocrat (Dr Obadiah Mailafia), adding that as he rightly said, the current gale of killings in Southern Kaduna rural communities are deliberately sponsored and a part of a bigger agenda to cause anarchy with the ultimate objective of taking over our ancestral lands.

The union recalled that in the past, there have been prominent people who came up with similar disturbing disclosures, but no such invitation was ever extended to them for questioning.

No fewer than 10 people lost their lives in fatal road accidents in Ogun and Anambra states on Monday. Six persons, including an infant, a five-year-old boy and a grandmother died in two separate crashes in Ogun, with 14 people injured. The first crash, which occurred on Ishara Bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, led to the death of four persons. The accident, which involved a Mazda with number plate, XC 330 WWD, occurred around 2.20pm. The second crash, which happened at Sagamu, claimed two lives and involved a Toyota Camry with number plate, LSD 797 GJ. The Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the two incidents. He said in the first accident, the four deceased passengers were a five-year-old boy, two male adults and one female adult. He explained that the crash happened after one of the tyres of their vehicle burst. “We learnt that the commercial bus, loaded with 16 passengers, including the driver, was on transit from Lagos to Ibadan, when the rear tyre burst due to speeding. “The four corpses were deposited at FOS Mortuary, Ipara-Remo, while the injured were admitted to Idera Hospital and Victory Hospital, Ibara Remo. “The vehicle was taken to Ishara Motor Traffic Division, Remo,” Akinbiyi added. He noted that the second accident was caused by reckless driving, adding that two pedestrians – a woman and her granddaughter – were killed. “According to an eyewitness, the Camry car was on top speed when it suddenly lost control, somersaulted and hit the aged mother and her granddaughter, who were in front of their house, which was by the roadside. “The aged woman and her granddaughter died on the spot, while the occupants of the vehicle, four of them, including the driver, were nowhere to be found. “Though they were reported to have been hospitalised at Idera Hospital, our post-crash investigation confirmed that they were not there,” Akinbiyi said.
