Dr Mailafia was quite a political force in his short-lived political career. He ventured into politics amid the killings in Southern Kaduna and ran for the presidency in the 2019 presidential election under the auspices of the African Democratic Congress (ADC). 

In 2019, he became particularly an entity of interest and public (government) scrutiny after he made certain sensitive statements that have been designated infamous by the federal government. 

Although his statements were seen as bold and liberating by some factions of the public, the federal government were not happy and immediately got Dr Mailafia interrogated and scrutinised by both Department of State Services (DSS) and the Nigeria Police Force.

However, the situation got curious as he later recanted his statements in a public conference. Well, below are the interesting statements of the late Dr Obadiah Mailafia:

  1. Mailafia claimed he had a classified intelligence report that a serving northern state governor is a commander of the Boko Haram terrorist group.
  2. Mailafia warned of an ongoing plot by Boko Haram to cause a second civil war through invasion of the southern part of the country.
  3. Mailafia asserted that Nigeria was more secured under the late dictator, Sani Abacha, than it is under President Muhammadu Buhari.
