The Department of State Services (DSS) has offered more explanations why it arrested Mallam Salihu Tanko-Yakassai, the Media Aide to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State.

The security outfit stated that his arrest followed issues beyond the expression of opinion in social media.

The Public Relations Officer of the DSS, Dr Peter Afunanya, offered the explanation in a statement on Sunday, February 28, in Abuja.

“This is to confirm that Salihu Tanko-Yakasai is with the DSS and he is being investigated over issues beyond the expression of opinions in the social media as wrongly alleged by sections of the public,’’ he stated.

Governor Ganduje, had at the weekend relived the media adviser of his job over alleged unguarded comments and utterances.

He said Tanko-Yakassai failed to differentiate between personal opinion and official stand on matters of public concern.

So, he said, he could not be allowed to continue to serve in a government he does not believe in.
