Mailafia: Na’Abba, Utomi, others threaten ‘major mass action’

Mailafia: Na’Abba, Utomi, others threaten ‘major mass action’

The National Consultative Front being piloted by a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Umar Na’Abba and former presidential candidate, Pat Utomi, on Friday condemned the third invitation extended by the Department of State Services to a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia.

The NCFront threatened “a major mass action” should anything happen to its leaders and associates, including Mailafia.

The organisation called on the government to refrain from further harassment of Mailafia and its other leaders by cautioning security agencies.

A statement by the group’s Head of Public Affairs Bureau and former presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party, Tanko Yunusa, said the invitation scheduled for Monday in Jos would be coming on the heels of a similar one by the Nigerian Police which is currently being contested in court.

The statement partly read, “We demand that nothing untoward should happen to any of our leaders and associates to avoid a major mass action. The NCFront believes in the right of every Nigerian to freely express themselves in civil society especially in a democracy as enshrined in the universal fundamental principles of human rights.

“We, therefore, unequivocally condemn this maltreatment of a respectable Nigerian like him and we stand firmly by him in this hour of his travails. Painting Mailafia in a bad light and attempting to pin on him an image of criminality is not only preposterous but also sinister.

“We are shocked to discover that Nigeria today is being run like a dictatorship by the current administration, which has developed a great penchant for gaging Nigerian citizens, denying them of their constitutional rights of freedom of expression and peaceful dissention.
