The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed the arrest of Salihu Tanko Yakasai. This was disclosed in a statement by DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya. Concerned Nigerians had called on the Kano state government to state the whereabouts of Yakasai after he seemingly disappeared. His disappearance on Friday evening followed his tweet that the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), should find a solution to insecurity or resign. This tweet had also led to his sack by Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje. Prior to this, Yakasai, was Ganduje’s Special Adviser on Media. “This is to confirm that Salihu Tanko-Yakasai is with the Department of State Services. He is being investigated over issues beyond the expression of opinions in the social media as wrongly alleged by sections of the public”, DSS’s statement read.
