The Department of State Services (DSS), has released the sacked special adviser on media to Kano State governor, Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, from custody.
Yakasai’s brother, Abdullahi, confirmed his release in a tweet on Monday evening.
He wrote: “Alhamdulilah. My brother @dawisu is out. Thank you all #freedawisu.”

The former media aide was arrested by the DSS on Friday evening, after he called for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation, following the abduction of over 300 students of Government Girls Science Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara State, by armed bandits.

Yakasai, who reacted to the students’ abduction on his Twitter handle, asked Buhari to address the incessant abduction of students and other security challenges in the country or resign.
Governor Abdullahi Ganduje later sacked him over his criticism of the President.
Following confusion over Yakasai’s whereabouts, the DSS confirmed on Saturday that he was in their custody.
DSS claimed Tanko-Yakasai’s arrest was beyond his remarks on Buhari.
