Mr Mailafia, 64, died on Sunday morning at the National Hospital, Abuja. He was certified dead by a medical doctor at the nation’s foremost public health facility, The Gazette learnt.

Mr Mailafia hailed from Randa, in the Christian-dominated Southern Kaduna, and taught economics at different institutions.

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.
