DSS Invades Tukur Mamu’s Residence In Kaduna

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) raided the residence of arrested terrorists’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu, in the wee hours of Thursday in Kaduna.

“They ransacked the house and carted away documents, phones and laptops. Those in the house were ordered to sign a document which they did not read before the officers took it back,” a witness said to Daily Trust.

Nexus News recalls that Mamu was arrested at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano on Wednesday afternoon.

Tukur Mamu’s office was also visited by the DSS after the raid in his house.

According to security sources, Mamu was arrested for alleged involvement in collecting ransom and delivering to terrorists in exchange for abducted victims.

The Kaduna-based bandits negotiator was first arrested in Egypt and detained for 24 hours before he was flown back to Nigeria.

Nexus News learnt that he was travelling along side his family in the Egypt Air aircraft, which flew than back to Kano around 1:55pm, where he was immediately picked up by DSS operatives.

The heavily armed operatives were also escorted by others dressed in mufti, who were on guard at the entrance of the arrival section of the international wing of the airport.

According to a statement by the DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya which confirmed Mamu’s arrest, the agency was interrogating him over security issues.

“The Department of State Services (DSS) has been inundated with enquires in respect of the arrest or otherwise of Tukur Mamu, the self-acclaimed Kaduna Train hostage negotiator. This is to confirm that Manu, as a person of interest, was intercepted by Nigeria’s foreign partners at Cairo, Egypt on 6th September, 2022 while on his way to Saudi Arabia.

“He has since been returned to the country, today, 7th September, 2022 and taken into the Service’s custody. The act followed a request by Nigeria’s Military, Law Enforcement and Intelligence Community to their foreign partners to bring back Mamu to the country to answer critical questions on ongoing investigations relating to some security matters in parts of the country. The public may wish to note that the law will appropriately take its course.” the statement read.
