A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has heard that during its preliminary investigation, the Department of State Services (DSS) found that former terrorists’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu, was involved in supplying logistics and aiding and abetting acts of terrorism.

According to the DSS they had recovered from Mamu’s residence, one firearm license; eight pieces of Nigerian Army uniforms; 16 pieces of Nigerian Naval uniforms, two packs of pump action cartridges; 16 ATM cards from both local and foreign banks; 24 handsets and three international passports belonging to Mamu; seven cheque books from different banks; six laptops and four tablets.

The DSS said their initial investigation found that Mamu “has used the cover of his profession as a journalist to aid both local and international terrorist groups.”

Justice Nkeonye Maha has granted the ex-parte motion to continue detention of Mamu for 60 days.
