VIDEO: Serving governor is a commander of Boko Haram – Ex-CBN boss

A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, has again accused a northern governor of heading the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists group.

Mailafia disclosed this in a video shared on Twitter by former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.

It was gathered that the video shared by the PDP stalwart was during an interview conducted by FatherLand and released in August 2020.

According to the former CBN boss, a civil war is being planned for Nigerian in 2022.

Recall that Mailafia had come under ‘attack’ by security agencies in 2020 after claiming that a governor from the north was a commander of Boko Haram and that insurgents would soon start urban killings and attacking southern parts of the country.
