The Department of State Services has slammed a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Mailafiya, over his comments on the ongoing Southern Kaduna skirmishes, saying he betrayed both his exalted office and personality.

The DSS, which made the claim in a statement signed by its Spokesman, Dr. Peter Afunanya on Friday morning, said it was disappointed that the eminent economist with unhindered access to many government platforms to share his concerns and security information opted to cross the line of decorum expected of such person.

The DSS noted: “Mailafiya, as a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and currently, a Directing Staff at Nigeria’s foremost Policy Research Institute, the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, has unhindered access to government platforms. It is expected that he should be conversant with official information management protocols.

“But regrettably, he chose to cross the lines of decorum and conduct expected of a personality of his status. It is disappointing that he never took advantage of these to reach any of the security or related agencies to share the so called information at his disposal. This, he has agreed to be a grievous error on his part. It, however, suggests his mischief and determination to use the fake news he spewed to incite the people under his control.

“It is even more condemnable that Mailafiya, who had profusely apologized during his visit to the Service’s Plateau State Command for his ignoble statement, would, afterwards, announce to the world that he stood by his misguided eruption.

“Similarly, the Service also wishes to warn others, who in the guise of political mobilization and supposed pursuit of group interests, engage in hostile and subversive activities, to desist forthwith from advancing their inimical and parochial causes.
