Terrorists’ Negotiator, Tukur Mamu In Our Custody, Says DSS
He has since been returned to the country, today
The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed the arrest of Tukur Mamu, the self-acclaimed Kaduna Train hostage negotiator.
Afrika Eyes earlier reports that Mr Tukur Mamu, was arrested by Interpol at the Cairo International Airport, Egypt.
A statement by the spokesman for the SSS, Peter Afunanya, said Mr Mamu would answer critical questions on security.
“This is to confirm that Mamu, as a person of interest, was intercepted by Nigeria’s foreign partners at Cairo, Egypt on 6th September 2022 while on his way to Saudi Arabia,” the statement read.
“He has since been returned to the country, today, 7th September 2022, and taken into the Service’s custody.
“The act followed a request by Nigeria’s military, law enforcement, and intelligence community to their foreign partners to bring back Mamu to the country to answer critical questions on ongoing investigations relating to some security matters in parts of the country. The public may wish to note that the law will appropriately take its course.”
