According to him, the DSS exhibited a high sense of professionalism in the way they handled the matter.

Mailafia urged them to ensure that this should be the last invitation, saying; “l was not, maltreated, harassed or intimated in any guise.

Mailafia explained: “what l said has nothing to with politics, l only spoke as a free citizen of this country and as such, l am the voice of the thousands of the voiceless of the citizens of this country.

Mailafia further explained saying; “Muslims and Christian youths have taken and accepted me as their voice, so, l am the voice of the holy martyrs, so if l parish, l parish. God help Nigeria”, he maintained.

However, the Counsel to Mailafia, Barrister Yakubu Bawa said, although, as a legal, we have examined the case, there is no doubt that the constant invitation by DSS of Dr Mailafia made him pass through psychological trauma and l hope this should be the last invitation.
