The Department of State Services (DSS) has invited another convener of the #NoreMoreBloodShed protests, which have enveloped Northern Nigerian states since the immolation of escaping travellers in Sokoto State last week.
The activist, Muhammad Bello Buhari, confirmed this on his verified Facebook handle: “I have just been invited by the DSS Kaduna State — to report at their office by 10 am tomorrow.”
Buhari further said that “I shall honour their invitation. This is our country. We have no any other place other than Nigeria. Our only offence is that we asked for the lives of Nigerians to be secured. We asked for the whereabouts of the few we elected to secure our lives and properties when we are being killed daily.”
So far, Muhammed Bello Buhari is not the first organiser to receive such an invitation from the nation’s secret police.
Zainab Nasir Ahmad, a Kano-based activist, was also grilled over the same protest she convened last week. She subsequently dissociated herself from future planned protests, citing security concerns.
