Just In: Salihu Tanko-Yakasai In Our Custody – DSS
According to TheCable, Peter Afunanya, DSS spokesman, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday evening.
The statement reads;
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.
The new development comes few hours after the agency denied that the former aide was in its custody.
Earlier today, friends and family of Tanko-Yakasai took to social media to announce this disappearance.
However, few hours later, Abubakar Sadiq, the handler of the Twitter handle and official website of Kano state government, in a tweet posted on Saturday morning, February 27, disclosed that he was in the custody of DSS..

He went apprehended barely 24 hours after he called for the resignation of Buhari-led administration over increased insecurity.
He stated that All Progressives Congress-led government had failed Nigerians, noting that citizens cannot continue to lament when tragedy occurs without taking any action to prevent a repeat.
