Tukur Mamu is in our custody for investigation – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) said the Publisher of Desert Herald Newspaper, Tukur Mamu is in its custody for investigation.

 A statement by Peter Afunaya, Public Relations Officer of the Service said Mamu was intercepted in Egypt on 6th September, 2022 enroute Saudi Arabia. 

The service assured that the law will take it appropriate course without stating what Mamu is being investigated for.

But the publisher recently alleged threat to his life from government for his role in negotiating the release of some victims of the ill fated Abuja-Kaduna train. 

The full statement reads;

“This is to confirm that Manu, 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. 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 Manu 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.”
