Buhari Wasn’t Arrested For Asking Jonathan To Resign – Falana

Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, (SAN) has kicked against the detention of former Special Adviser on Media to Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, Salihu Tanko Yakasai.

Salihu was arrested and subsequently sacked after he called for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation over insecurity.

In a statement on Sunday, Falana said Salihu is being held incommunicado in an undisclosed detention facility for merely exercising his freedom of expression enshrined in Section 39 of the Constitution,1999.

Falana recalled that between 2013 and 2014, leaders of the APC, including Buhari, Asiwaju Bola Tinibu, Malam Nasir El-Rufai and Alhaji Lai Mohammed repeatedly asked former President Goodluck Jonathan to resign.

He said they were never subjected to any form of intimidation for exercising their freedom of expression at the material time.

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed that the former aide of Kano governor is in its custody.
