“I have indicated that I have reason to believe that my life has been in danger. I have no conclusive proof but I get threats, I get calls.

“Where I was staying, on Thursday, I saw some strange people at the gate trying to break in. I jumped the fence and escaped because I don’t know who they are," he said.

Mailafia, however, stated that he has no evidence to back up his claim that his life is under threat.

According to Premium Times, the former banker also backpedaled on some of the allegations he made about the security situation in the country during a radio interview.

He stated that he has no evidence to back his allegations that the government was culpable in the killing of Nigerians.

He also pointed out that he could not validate his claims that an unnamed Nigerian governor was a sponsor of bandits killing Nigerians.
