Incriminating Military Uniforms, Huge Cash, Financial Transactions Found In Tukur Mamu’s House, Office, Says DSS

The Department of State Service (DSS) says it recovered incriminating materials, including military accoutrements, large amounts of different currencies and denominations in the houses and office of terrorists/bandits’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu.

Spokesperson of DSS, Dr Peter Afunanya, said in reactions to Daily Trust’s inquiries about a raid carried out in the Kaduna house and office of Mamu in the early hours of Thursday that many things recovered were so incriminating, saying the arrested 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.

One of our correspondents, who visited the area at about 9:30am on Thursday, observed the presence of unusual number of masked personnel of the Service.

A source at the headquarters of the secret Police told Daily Trust that the deployment might not be unconnected with presence of Mamu at the facility.

Security sources said Mamu was arrested for his alleged involvement in collecting ransom and taking same to terrorists in exchange for kidnapped victims.

Daily Trust had reported how Mamu was arrested at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano on Wednesday afternoon.

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

Daily Trust observed that while the Egypt Air aircraft, which conveyed him and his family members, touched down in Kano around 1:55pm, he was immediately picked up.

DSS operatives 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 moved forward while the luggage, presumably of Mamu and his family members. The luggage were loaded in one of the vehicles while the one which picked Mamu zoomed off.
