We found military items, currencies in bandits’ negotiator, Mamu’s house – DSS

Bandits' negotiator, Mamu DSS Court

The Department of State Security Service (DSS) has said military items, and foreign currencies were found when the security operatives raided the Kaduna residence and office of bandits’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu.

The DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, made this known in a statement on Thursday.

KEMI FILANI NEWS had reported that Mamu was arrested alongside his family members in Cario, the capital of Egypt, and later flown back to Nigeria.

Mamu said he was arrested and detained at the Cairo International Airport for 24 hours while going to Saudi Arabia for lesser Hajj.

The DSS operatives picked up the Kaduna-based publisher and his family members immediately after their plane landed at the Kano airport on Wednesday and took them to Abuja.

The DSS Spokesman, who confirmed the raid said, “So far, appropriate security agencies have executed valid search warrants on Mamu’s residence and office. During the processes, incriminating materials including military accoutrements were recovered.

“Other items include large amounts in different currencies and denominations as well as financial transaction instruments.

“While further investigations continue, Mamu will, sure, have a day in court.”

Afunanya, however, did not give an idea as to when the suspect would appear in court.
