The Department of State Security Service, DSS has released Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, popularly known as ‘Dawisu’,a former spokesman to the Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.
This was confirmed by his elder brother, Umar. He disclosed that his brother is currently on the way home.
It will be recalled that the DSS confirmed arresting Yakasai after a major outcry on Social media. Initially, the Kano State Director of the service, Alhassan Mohammed denied arresting Mr Tanko-Yakasai, describing the report as mere ‘rumour’.
State governor, Umar Ganduje sacked Yakasai shortly after the arrest over “unguarded utterances” and criticisms against the ruling APC.
