Confirming the arrests on Wednesday in a telephone chat, Abraham Alberah, spokesman of the PDP in Kaduna, said the trio was arrested by the DSS on an allegation of incitement.
Alberah also alleged that some members of the campaign council have been marked for arrest by the DSS on the instruction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the state.
“The APC is using security agencies to intimidate the opposition in the face of glaring defeat awaiting it in Saturday’s governorship election,”Albera said.
“The DSS arrested them, claiming that they have been inciting violence. There is no doubt that the ruling party is using security agencies to intimidate us.
“Those targeted for arrest by the DSS include, Victor Bobai -assistant director, social media, Reuben Buhari -deputy director, media and publicity, Yakubu Lere – assistant director, public affairs, Saidu Adamu – assistant director, electronic media and myself, the secretary of the media and publicity committee of the campaign council.”
