The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked for the immediate and unconditional release of Salihu Yakasai, son of elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, from security custody.

The party in a communique by its spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan described the reported arrest of Salihu by security operatives as well as his alleged detention in a secret facility, just after his criticism against the Buhari administration’s failures in the fight against banditry in the country, as completely unacceptable.

The PDP also condemned the decision of the Governor of Kano State, Alhaji Umar Ganduje, in summarily relieving Salihu Yakasai of his appointment as his Special Adviser on media, on the ground that his patriotic demand for a decisive action to end terrorism, was contrary to the stand of the APC government.

According to the party, it is also instructive to note that Governor Ganduje equally warned all political appointees and public servants in the state against such patriotic expressions like those made by Salihu.
