Home Nation DSS arrests organisers of anti-govt protest in Kano

DSS arrests organisers of anti-govt protest in Kano

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested the organisers of the protest against “insecurity and bad governance”.

In a statement on Saturday, Abdulazeez Suleiman, spokesman of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG), said the arrested persons were invited to the office of the secret police for questioning but detained afterwards.

He identified those arrested as Nastura Sharif, Balarabe Rufai, Aminu Adam and Muhammad Nawaila.

“The #EndInsecurityNow protests against the rampant killings in Northern Nigeria and displacement of hundreds of communities has come under intense pressure and intimidation in the last few hours by the DSS which is hell-bent on suppressing the tearful voice of northerner,” the statement read.

“The development saw officials of the CNG, Nastura Sharif, Balarabe Rufai, Aminu Adam and Dr Muhammad Nawaila being invited by the DSS in Kano where they were held from 11pm on Friday to 2.15am on Saturday.

“Throughout their stay at the DSS office, they were incommunicado, not answering calls on their phones and not returning same. We are on the alert.”

In the last one week, there have been protests across the country and all efforts of the government to restore normalcy have not yielded meaningful result.
