A High Court sitting in Jos  has dismissed an application by former deputy governor of Central Bank, Obadiah Mailafia, seeking to restrain the Inspector-General of Police from inviting him for questioning over comments he made about Boko Haram.

The application was brought before the court after the police invited Mailafia to its Abuja headquarters following a radio interview he granted in which he accused a northern governor of being a leader of Boko Haram.
