The departnemt of state services through its spokesperson Peter Afunanya has confirmed that the former aide to governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano state, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, is in their custody for interrogation but said he is being investigated over issues beyond the expression of opinions on social media as wrongly alleged by sections of the public as there have been concerns on social media over his whereabouts since his criticism of the government of President Buhari.

Since his arrest, there have been calls for his release from several groups including the peoples democratic party (PDP) and Amnesty International.

Meanwhile the Kano state government in a statement said Salihu Tanko-Yakasai has been relieved from his duty, saying he has failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern and subsequently could not be allowed to continue to serve in a government he does not believe in.
