The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested the duo of Sharu Abubakar Tabula and Isma’il Iliyasu Mangu for deliberately inciting violence in parts of Kano State.
According to a statement by the spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, the suspects had separately recorded messages, which they shared through various social media channels.
“In those potentially harmful messages, they specifically championed certain political interests and directly called on their supporters to violently attack those opposed to them, including security personnel during the 18th March 2023 Governorship and House of Assembly election in the State.
“As a result of this development, a particular political party in Kano has threatened to organise a protest march in the metropolis as well as storm offices of some of the security agencies on 16th March 2023 in solidarity for the suspects.
” While the Service alerts the public of this planned illegal action, it calls on the concerned party to shelve it forthwith or be ready to face the consequences. The DSS assures that it will not idly watch misguided persons or groups undermine the peace and security of the state,” the statement read partly.
