The Department of State Security Services, DSS, has provided an update on a raid on the home of Tukur Mamu, publisher of the Desert Herald and hostage negotiator for the Kaduna Train.
Mamu was apprehended by the agency on Wednesday at the request of the Nigerian military.
The DSS revealed that ‘incriminating materials’ were discovered in Mamu’s home in a statement released on Thursday evening, signed by its PRO, Peter Afunanya(Phd.).
“So far, appropriate security agencies have executed valid search warrants on Mamu’s residence and office,” the statement said.
“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.”
