The Department of State Services (DSS), on Thursday night, said that it had recovered several incriminating materials, including military accoutrements from the residence of the arrested Abuja-Kaduna train hostage negotiator, Alhaji Tukur Manu.

This was contained in a terse statement signed by its spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya. 

The statement declared that with this development, Mamu would be charged in court.

So far, appropriate security agencies have executed valid search warrants on Mamu’s residence and office.

During the process, 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”, the statement read.

Recall that Mr Mamu, who is the publisher of Desert Herald Newspaper in Kaduna was arrested and detained by the Egyptian police at the Cairo International Airport while awaiting a connecting flight to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.

He was later released and was flown back to Nigeria, Wednesday morning and immediately arrested by the Service.
