The People’s Democratic Party has demanded the immediate and unconditional release of Salihu Yakasai, son of elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, from security custody.

The party in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan described the reported arrest of Salihu by security operatives as well as his alleged detention in a secret facility as completely unacceptable.

 

The party said Salihu Yakasai’s ordeal is a sad reminder of the sudden disappearance of another known critic of the Buhari government, ABUBAKAR IDRIS, popularly known as Abu Hanifa Dadiyata, since August 2019.

 

The PDP further reminded agents of the APC-led government that Nigeria is a democratic nation and that the rights of citizens, including their freedom of expression, within the ambit of the law, are firmly guaranteed in the 1999 Constitution and must be respected.
