Mr Mailafiya’s lawyer, Yakubu Bawa, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Jos.

According to him, Mr Mailafiya is expected to be at the Jos office of the SSS on Monday by 12 noon.

Mr Bawa said the invitation was in connection with Mailafiya’s encounter with the SSS last week.

“I believed it wouldn’t be anything different from the last encounter with SSS, which was purely interactive,” he said.

NAN recalled that Mr Mailafiya was last Wednesday invited by the security outfit following an interview he granted to an Abuja based Radio FM.
