Kano state government’s special adviser on media, Salihu Tanko Yakasai A.K.A Dawisu was reported missing and later confirmed to be in custody of the secret service.
He was arrested in Kano and taken to Abuja. According to Japhet Omojuwa, the state director of the DSS did not order the arrest. As at 1am today, the Kano state director of DSS had said they didn’t pick him. This means that Abuja operated independently without informing their colleagues in Kano.
Allegedly, Dawisu was arrested over a statement he made on Twitter regarding the news of abducted school girls in Zamfara state.
Many concerned Nigerians took to the Twitter to express their concerns over Dawisu’s arrest using the hashtag #FreeDawisu.Stay updated via social media
