OVERVIEW OF: Police Invitation: Court Rules Against Mailafia
A High Court sitting in Jos, the Plateau State capital has dismissed the suit by Dr Obadiah Mailafia challenging his invitation by the Nigeria Police Force.
The court in its ruling on Tuesday, dismissed the application by the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
Naija News recalls the Police Force had in August 2020, summoned Mailafia to appear at their Abuja headquarters office in relation to an ongoing investigation.
According to the letter marked confidential, and titled ‘Re: Investigation Activities, Police Investigation’, the 2019 presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress was expected to report at the Force Criminal Investigation Department in Abuja.
The police said the invitation was based on “investigating a case in which your name featured prominently,” hence the summons.
However, Mailafia did not honour the invitation but rather headed to court to challenge the Police order.
Mailafia has been in the news since his declaration that a sitting Northern Governor is the Commander of the Boko Haram Terrorist group in Nigeria.
