The Department of State Services (DSS) has disclosed that it has recovered numerous criminal materials and weapons including military accoutrements during their investigation at the residence of Alhaji Tukur Mamu, the arrested leader of the Abuja-Kaduna train massacre, on Thursday night.
The DSS disclosed this in a statement by its spokesperson, Dr Peter Afunanya. The statement disclosed that with the latest investigations, Mamu would be arraigned in court.
DSS had assigned security agencies to conduct a thorough checking on Mamu’s residence and office for more reports. It was during this check that the incriminating materials, including military accoutrements were found.
The statement from DSS spokesman read: “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.”
It will be recalled 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.
