So our democracy is only under threat when DSS, police harass senators?

The Department of State Security Service (DSS) on Thursday appealed to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) to call off the ongoing strike over its security implications.

He noted that the strike, which paralysed university education in the country, had security implications.

“In as much as we know that ASUU is pursuing a genuine cause, they should take a deeper look at the peculiarities of North-East region that has stayed for over a decade in the hands of insurgents,” Mr Yunusa said.
