Ganduje’s aide not in our custody – DSS denies arrest claims

The Department of State Services has denied arresting the Media Aide to Governor Ganduje of Kano State, Salihu Tanko Yakasai over his comments against the government of President Muhammadu Buhari and APC.

Yesterday, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, called on the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to either deal with bandits in the country or resign.

There was a new report that Salihu was arrested by DSS on Saturday, February 27 after he tweeted;

“Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number 1 duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives & properties. Not a single day goes by without some sort of insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign.

“Each time another tragedy happens, we lament, condemn, create hashtag, the govt pretends to do something, no concrete steps to prevent reoccurrence, and then we repeat the process. To what end? Where are those saddled with the responsibility?

“Just last week, it was #freekagaraboys, today we have a new hashtag #RescueJangebeGirls, who knows tomorrow what hashtag we will come up with? Perhaps one for ourselves when we get caught up in one of these daring attacks. This is sad & heartbreaking; I feel helpless & hopeless.”

However, the DSS State Director, Muhammad Alhassan denied arresting him as he said; “we have not arrested or even invited Salihu, don’t forget he is our friend, sometimes, he advises us on issues of critical Security situations in Kano”.
