The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State on Monday said operatives of Directorate of State Services (DSS) have arrested the party’s former chairman, Alhaji Yaro Makama.

The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Abraham Catoh, confirmed the arrest.

The arrest of the former chairman is coming about 72 hours after the Spokesperson of the party’s state campaign council, Ben Bako was arrested over alleged inciting and hate speech during a campaign rally.

Catoh alleged that Makama was invited to the State Police Command, from where he was whisked away to an unknown destination by the DSS operatives.

The party’s spokesman said there were no details as to why he was arrested, but added that, Makama was invited by the security agents for questioning about two weeks ago but was released.

He said there was no information yet about Makama’s whereabouts, adding “they have taken him away a couple of hours ago to an undisclosed location.”

The PDP had on Sunday in Kaduna, alleged at a news conference that 150 of its top members were pencilled for arrest by the ruling APC in the state, a claim dismissed by the APC.

Samuel Aruwan, Senior Special Assistant to Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai, had denied the PDP allegation, saying the security agents did not need the State Government to teach them their statutory responsibility.
