OBADIAH MAILAFIA, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA, CBN, 2005-2007 in an Interview on Fm99.3. August 10, 2020. Videoed. Also carried on utube.
Let me make some revelations because some of us have our own intelligence network. I have met with some of the bandits. We have met with some of their high Commanders. One or two who have ‘repented’. They have sat down with us, not once, not twice. They told us that one of the Northern Governors is the commander of the BOKO HARAM in Nigeria. BOKO HARAM and the Bandits are one and the same thing.
They have a sophisticated network. During this lockdown, their planes were moving up and down as if there was no lockdown, moving ammunitions, moving logistics, moving money and distributing them into different parts of the country. They are already in the South, in the rain forests of the South. They are everywhere.
They told us that when they finish these rural killings they will move to Phase2. The Phase 2 is to go into the urban cities, going from house to house killing prominent people. I can tell you, this isn’t kidding. By 2022 they want to start a civil war in Nigeria.
Don’t joke with what I’m saying, I have a PhD from Oxford University. I am a Central Banker. We don’t talk nonsense Don’t joke with what am telling you. I heard this from the highest possible authority, highest authority from some of the Commanders.
You said Northern Governors, Past or Present?
No, Current. They said one of them is the commander of BOKO HARAM.
