Court Establishes Mamu As Terrorism Financier – DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday told a Federal High Court (FHC) in Abuja that its preliminary investigation established that the hostage negotiator, Tukur Mamu, is a terror sponsor.

In an affidavit in support of its ex-parte motion filed before the court, the security agency added that Mamu, who had been leading negotiations with the abductors of the  Kaduna-bound train passengers on March 28,  was on his way to a meet with foreign terrorist leaders before his interception last week.

Presiding Justice Evelyn Maha granted the motion by counsel for the DSS, Ahmed Magaji, seeking an order to detain Mamu, the publisher of Desert Herald,  for 60 days in the first instance, pending the conclusion of the investigation.
