Ologbonyan said he was accosted on the road and arrested, adding that he was still making efforts to obtain further details.

A host of opposition voices online quickly pointed at the State Security Service as the agency responsible for Galadima’s arrest, and demanded his immediate release.

A spokesperson for the SSS said he could not immediately confirm or deny claims of Galadima’s arrest.

Keyamo accused Galadima of recording a video announcing PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar winner of the Saturday’s polls.
