The Department of State Service (DSS) says it 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 to the media on the raid carried out in the Kaduna house and office of Mamu in the hours of Thursday.
The DSS said 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, according to Dailytrust, the secret police has beefed up security around its facility in its Abuja headquarters.
A source at the headquarters of the secret police told the Newspaper that the deployment might not be unconnected with presence of Mamu at the facility.
Daily Trust had reported how Mamu was arrested at Malam Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano on Wednesday afternoon.
The Kaduna-based published who was first arrested in Egypt was detained for 24 hours before he was flown back to Nigeria.
The Newspaper 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.
