A former Central Bank Deputy Governor, Mr. Obadiah Mailafia has died, family members can confirm.
The statesman reportedly died in the early hours of Sunday at the National Hospital, Abuja.
Mailafia was known for his firm criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari, especially as it pertains to insecurity.
His criticism of the Federal Government at some point landed him into the net of the DSS.
The 64-year-old was from the Christian dominated Kaduna South, and in 2019, contested but lost the Presidential race under the platform of the African Democratic Congress.
