On Sunday, Mr Mailafia, a fierce critic of Mr Buhari’s regime, died at the age of 64 at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital.
In May, Mr Mailafia accused the Buhari regime of several attempts to have him silenced, following allegations he made on the insecurity ravaging Nigeria.
