The @OfficialPDPNig demands an immediate and unconditional release of Mr. Aminu Ademu by the Department of State Services (DSS).
The party says it received information that certain operatives of the service, in a Gestapo style, on Thursday, invaded the residence of @Oma_igala1, the Kogi State-born political activist and member of the @OfficialPDPNig, in a bid to arrest him.

Our party was further informed that Ademu was picked by the DSS in place of his cousin, @Oma_igala1, who they have been allegedly hounding for unexplained reasons.
Our party vehemently condemns this resort to the use of state apparatus of power to hound, harass, intimidate, illegally arrest and detain innocent citizens in direct violation of their constitutionally guaranteed rights to personal liberty and freedom of expression.

We hope that this clampdown is not a reaction to @Oma_igala1’s outspokenness and revelation on the alleged activities of the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello, on the awaited Supreme Court judgment on the Kogi state governorship election.
The @OfficialPDPNig notes that such actions on innocent Nigerians is totally a direct assault on our democratic order and hereby demands the unconditional release of Ademu.”
