Obadiah Mailafia, a former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) is dead.
Mr Mailafia, 64, died on Sunday morning at a hospital in Abuja.
He became a frontline critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies as part of his advocacy and was recently invited by the State Security Service to explain some of his on-air comments about deliberate violence across the country.
The former presidential candidate of African Democratic Congress (ADC), was invited by the Department of State Services for his claim that a serving Northern governor was the commander of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists.
