The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied arresting Salihu Tanko-Yakasai, a former media aide of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje who demanded for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation over his failure to handle insecurity in the country.

He was arrested on Saturday after demanding Buhari’s resignation according to his father, the famous politician, Tanko Yakasai who confirmed his son’s arrest to the Daily Trust.
