We Found Military Uniforms, Huge Cash In Tukur Mamu’s House – DSS

The Department of State Service (DSS) has said that it had recovered incriminating materials, including military accoutrements, large amounts of different currencies and denominations in the houses of bandits’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu.

The spokesman of DSS, Peter Afunanya disclosed this in reactions to media enquiry about a raid carried out in the Kaduna house and office of Mamu in the early hours of today, September 8.

Afunanya said that many things recovered were so incriminating, saying that the arrested Tukur Mamu, who is a journalist and publisher will be charged to court.

”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 said.

Meanwhile, the secret police has beefed up security around its facility in its Abuja headquarters.

A source at the headquarters of the secret police hinted that the deployment heavy security personnel might not be unconnected with presence of Mamu at the facility.

Security sources said Mamu was arrested for his alleged involvement in collecting and sharing ransom being taken from the families of victims to terrorists in exchange for kidnapped victims.

Mamu was arrested at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano yesterday, September 7 afternoon.

The Kaduna-based publisher, who was first arrested in Egypt was detained for 24 hours before he was flown back to Nigeria.

While the Egypt Air aircraft, which conveyed him and his family members, touched down in Kano around 1:55pm, he was immediately picked up by the operatives of the DSS, who were stationed at the entrance of the international wing of the airport several minutes before the aircraft landed.

Heavily armed operatives who were also in company of others dressed in mufti, were on guard at the entrance of the arrival section of the international wing of the airport where three vehicles – two hilux and one hiace- with Kano number plates parked by the entrance.

As passengers began to file out from the arrival section, one of the hilux vehicles moved forward as the luggage, presumably of Mamu and his family members, were being loaded in one of the vehicles while the one which picked Mamu zoomed off.
