The Department of State Services (DSS) still has in detention Alhaji Sani Musa whose company supplied the Permanent Voters Cards for the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC).
Daily Trust had reported on Thursday that Musa was invited to the Head office of the DSS on Tuesday and was detained.
Sources close to the Family also disclosed on Friday that he was still being held to provide encryption codes for the Permanent Voters Cards.
A source said Sani Musa's wife was allowed to visit him on Thursday, which has reduced apprehension among his relatives who have been worried about his well being.
The family members now appear to be relieved and comforted normal, contrary to fears that he was being tortured.
Daily Trust also gathered that Sani Musa has not divulged the information being requested by the DSS, which is probable why he is still being held.
Sources also hinted that promises where made to release him today, but the prevalent thinking is that he may be kept in DSS detention until after the presidential elections.
When contacted yesterday to confirm if Alhaji Sani Musa is in DSS custody, the spokesperson for the DSS Marilyn Ogar said: “I will not mention names of people, we have been mandated to do our job and that we will do,”
She added that: “It is election period and people cannot stop us from doing our job, we are not politicians, we will not be dragged into political issues.”
Alhaji Sani Musa, who is the owner of ACT Technologies, the company that manufactured and supplied the PVCs to INEC, is now under unlawful detention in DSS dungeons, the APC said yesterday.
