The Director, Media and Publicity of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organisation in Kaduna State, Ben Bako, has been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

He was arrested on Saturday night after honouring an invitation by the DSS in Kaduna.

Bako was arrested following video clips showing him making inciting comments during the PDP campaign rally last week in Kafanchan, Jama’a Local Government of Kaduna state.

In the video, Bako urged party members to deal with anyone that will work against the PDP during the elections.

It was learnt that Bako has been taken to Abuja headquarters of the DSS for questioning over what it referred to as hate speech.

Recall that the All Progressives Congress,(APC), supporters have earlier called for Bako’s arrest over alleged incitement.

They further claimed that, the PDP’s Spokesperson had told their supporters in Southern Kaduna during one of the opposition’s campaign rallies to attack anyone who will vote for APC in the area.

Spokesman of the PDP in the state, Abraham Catoh, confirmed the arrest, saying that Bako was invited by the DSS in Kaduna on Saturday over his comments during the campaigns in Kafanchan and was taken to Abuja after hours of questioning.

Catoh said the PDP is expected to address a news conference on the issue Monday.
