Mailafia has been having series of invitations from the Department of State Services (DSS) over a statement he made alleging that a Northern governor is the leader of Boko Haram.
On a second invitation, Mailafia refused to honour the invitation but instead filed a lawsuit seeking a restraining order against his invitation by the police.
Speaking to reporters in Jos, the Plateau State capital, after he was interrogated for a third time by the DSS, Mailafia said he has been getting threats to his life.
“I have indicated that I have reason to believe that my life has been in danger.
“Where I was staying, on Thursday, I saw some strange people at the gate trying to break in. I jumped the fence and escaped because I don’t know who they are,” he said
