The Ganduje’s aide wrote on Twitter;

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 insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign.

Salihu stressed;

Hours after his tweets, his whereabout was unknown and many friends and followers began to ask questions on Twitter.

Few hours after, Abubakar Sadiq, who is the handler of the Twitter handle and official website of Kano state government, in a tweet posted on Saturday morning, February 27, disclosed that Salihu is with DSS.

As at the time of filing this report, the DSS was yet to confirm or deny his arrest.
