He recently revealed this via a series of tweets on social media, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, the arrest is shameful and disheartening, and it is another sad commentary on how low this APC government of President Muhammadu Buhari has gone.
He added that it is pathetic to see how Nigerians are told not to criticize the same President Buhari who did not only speak against his predecessors, but also led protests.
His words, “I join all well-meaning Nigerians to demand for the immediate release of Salihu Yakasai. He did not commit any offence to warrant being taken into custody.”
“That he was arrested like a common criminal by the DSS just because he spoke his mind against a President that is more like the servant of the people is another sad commentary on how low this APC govt of Buhari has gone.”
“Sad that under this govt, our security men are only efficient in persecuting whoever speaks against the President. Sad too that Nigerians can’t criticize the same President who did not only speak against his predecessors but also led protests.”
“I commend the courage of Salihu Yakasai, the sacked Gov Ganduje’s Aide for being able to speak truth to power.”
“This singular action of his has made him the latest hero of our democracy, and in turn confirmed that there is hope for a united Nigeria.”
“Nothing can be more honourable than what he has done by standing tall amidst darkness and selfishness of leadership.”
“His sack is the beginning of his rise politically. I sincerely congratulate him and indeed the ordinary Nigerians seeking good governance and leadership. On #BuhariMustResign we stand.”
