Mailafia made headlines recently when he claimed that a northern governor was one of the terror group’s top leaders.
The Department of State Services (DSS) summoned him over the allegation and interrogated him for hours before releasing him.
Mailaifa had talked on the killings in Southern Kaduna, one of the parts of the North-West region worst hit by banditry.
The interviewer had asked Mailaifa if the government was unwilling to protect the people of Southern Kaduna, to which he replied that some residents believed the government was sponsoring the killers.
Dr Mailafia said, “Some of us also have our intelligence networks. 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 Boko Haram in Nigeria. Boko Haram and the bandits are one and the same. They have a sophisticated network. During this lockdown their planes were moving up and down as if there was no lockdown.
“They were moving ammunition, moving money, and distributing them across different parts of the country.”
