Northern Governors Forum has called on security agencies to investigate the comment credited to a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, over an allegation that one of the northern governors is the Commander of Boko Haram in Nigeria.

In a statement by the NGF chairman and governor of Plateau state, Mr Simon Lalong, they said the Forum is concerned about the weighty allegation made by Dr. Mailafia which must be thoroughly investigated.

Mailafia, who was the presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress in the 2019 presidential election was specifically commenting on the spate of killings in Southern Kaduna, Kaduna state.

The former CBN boss said he had a chat with two repentant terrorists, who identified the northern governor to him.

The Mailafia also said the that Boko Haram elements had infiltrated Southern Nigeria with a plan to spark off a second civil war.
