"Japa"! Ex-Aide To Kano State Governor, Dawisu, Who DSS Arrested For Criticising Buhari Says As He Leaves Nigeria

Salihu Tanko Yakasai, former media aide to Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, has travelled out of the country.


In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Yakasai, popularly known as Dawisu, said “goodbye” to Nigeria.

He did not indicate where he was heading to, but he shared pictures of himself at the airport and the airline he was flying with.

“Japa….. Goodbye Naija! Alhamdulilah!” he wrote.

In February, Yakasai was picked up by the Department of State Services (DSS) after he criticised President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration on Twitter.

He had asked the president to resign from office following the abduction of hundreds of schoolgirls from Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe, Zamfara state.

“Clearly, we as APC government, at all levels, have failed Nigerians in the number 1 duty we were elected to do which is to secure lives & properties. Not a single day goes by without some sort of insecurity in this land. This is a shame! Deal with terrorists decisively or resign,” Yakasai had tweeted.

Hours after the tweet, he was picked up by the DSS and questioned on “issues beyond the expression of opinions in the social media”.

Yakasai was released by the agency two days after he was picked up.
