Former CBN deputy governor, Obadiah Mailafia dies at age 64

Former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) deputy-governor, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, is dead.

Mr Mailafia reportedly died at the National Hospital Abuja this morning, September 19. He was 64 years old.

Mailafia hailed from Randa in the Christian-dominated area of Southern Kaduna in Kaduna state.

He spent the latter part of his years advocating for a solution to the protracted killings in Southern Kaduna, which had been linked to armed herdsmen of Fulani origin.



May his soul rest in peace, Amen
