The Peoples Gazette learnt from family sources that Obadiah Mailafia is a Nigerian economist who served as the deputy central bank governor.
Mr Mailafia, 64, died in the National Hospital in Abuja on Sunday morning. A physician at the leading public health facility in the Nation, The Gazette, certified him dead.
Mr Mailafia has trained and taught economics at various institutions in the Christian-dominated southern Kaduna of Randa.
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.
He became a frontline critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and security agencies as part of his advocacy and was recently invited by the State Security Service to explain some of his on-air comments about deliberate violence across the country.
