The Department of State Services (DSS) has released its conclusions following a raid on the residence and workplace of Tukur Mamu, publisher of the Desert Herald.
According to a statement published by DSS Spokesperson Peter Afunanya on Thursday, September 8, incriminating materials were found during a search of Mamu’s residence and workplace.
“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.”
Mamu has been involved in negotiations for the release of people who were kidnapped on a train in Kaduna in March 2022.
Mamu, an assistant to well-known Islamic cleric Ahmad Gumi, was apprehended at Kano International Airport after returning from Egypt, where he had previously been detained by authorities on his way to Saudi Arabia for a lesser hajj.
