…Laments Intimidation, Repression of Citizens
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tasked the Directorate of Security Services (DSS) to speak out on the reported claims that its men were involved in the violent abduction of social activist and PDP new media personality, Abubakar Idris, popularly known as Abu Hanifa Dadiyata, since last Friday.
The party says the DSS cannot continue to keep quiet on the issue since there are already claims in the news media and the public space that its men participated in the abduction allegedly on the behest of interests affiliated to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
More so, Mr. Idris is known for his fierce criticism of anti-people policies of the APC and its administration, particularly in Kano state.
There are already public insinuations that Dadiyata’s abduction to an unknown destination is not unconnected with an apparent desperation to intimidate, suppress and silence public opinion and free speech in Nigeria as well as to further entrench a siege mentality on our citizenry.
The PDP therefore demands the DSS high command to speak out as well as take urgent steps to secure the release of Dadiyata from his abductors before it is too late.
The is especially because the polity is already overheated and any delay in the release of Dadiyata is capable of triggering further aggressions in our polity, particularly in Kano state, where he commands a very large followership.
