A report by TheCable indicates that the Department of State Service (DSS) has invited a former speaker of the house of representatives, Ghali Na’Abba, for questionning.
Legit.ng gathered that the secret police invited Na’Abba four days after he made critical comments about the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recalls that in a television broadcast, Na’Abba, who is a co-chairman of the newly formed National Consultative Front (NCFront), said Nigeria is now a failed state.
He listed unemployment, insecurity, economic hardship as some of the factors that have shown that this government “is incompetent.”
In a statement on Saturday, August 15, Yunusa Tanko, a spokesman of the NCFront, said Na’Abba would appear at the DSS headquarters on Monday, August 17.
“Please, be notified that the DSS, on Friday, sent an invitation to NCFront co-chair and former speaker of Nigeria, Rt Hon Ghali Umar Na’Abba after his very profound interview on Channels Television on Thursday, with regards to the NCFront agenda to bring about a new Nigeria that works for all.
“However, our leader, Ghali Umar Na’Abba, has decided to honour the DSS invitation and therefore shall be visiting the DSS Headquarters in Abuja, on Monday, at 12 noon."
The NCFront was launched on July 1, as a political movement “aimed at driving reforms” in the country.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Obadiah Mailafia, explained the source of his information on an alleged commander of Boko Haram.
It was reported that Mailafia said on Thursday, August 13, that he got his information from traders he met in a local market.
The newspaper said Mailafia made this known during an interview he granted to the BBC Hausa service.
In another report, DSS revealed what the former presidential hopeful did when he visited its Port Harcourt office.
The DSS said Mailafia had profusely apologised for using fake news to mislead the public.
The secret security agency said on Friday, August 13, that Mailafia was playing to the gallery and desperate to breach the peace in the country.
Mailafia had in a recent interview, alleged that a northern governor was the commander of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
