The spokesperson of DSS Dr. Peter Afunanya, denied the claim by the Kano Governor's spokesperson while speaking with an online correspondent.

Afunanya said: “This is a very ridiculous statement. Arresting judges for what reason? It is not true, please.”

Speaking in an interview on Channels Television, Sanusi Bature said, “there is no reason why the DSS can a judge without any suspicion. The DSS arrested one of the judges that delivered the judgement in Kano and I believe that is intimidation.”

“Even this virtual judgement they delivered, we do not know where they delivered it from. Probably, they delivered the judgement under duress or whatever, I am not sure. We do not know the location from which they delivered the judgement and we do not know their condition because we could only see them on the screen.

A lot of things happened behind the scene and to our surprise, the person who was declared winner was not even joined in the case. Gawuna contested in the election, accepted defeat, and he congratulated Abba Kabir and said that he is not going to .”
