The Department of State Services (DSS) has briefed the general public after raiding the residence and office of “Tukur Mamu”, publisher of Desert Herald Newspaper.
Recall that THE GIANT SOURCE reported earlier that the residence and office of “Tukur Mamu”, who is an aide to popular Islamic cleric “Sheikh Ahmad Gumi”, and also has been involved in negotiations for the safe release of Kaduna-Abuja train victims was raided by DSS, and he was arrested at Kano international airport, after he returned from Egypt, where he was earlier detained by the authorities on his way to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj.
DSS Spokesperson, “Peter Afunanya”, in a statement released on Thursday September 8, said incriminating materials were found during a search on Mamu’s house and office.
The statement read:
“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.”
