The Department of State Services, (DSS), has confirmed the arrest of self-acclaimed Kaduna train hostage negotiator, Tukur Mamu.
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer Department of State Service, Dr. Peter Afunanya, confirmed that Mamu, as a person of interest, was intercepted by Nigeria’s foreign partners at Cairo, Egypt yesterday while on his way to Saudi Arabia.
According to the statement, he was returned to the country today and has since been taken into custody.
It said the arrest was possible following a request by Nigeria’s Military, Law Enforcement and Intelligence Community to their foreign partners to bring back Mamu to the country to answer critical questions on ongoing investigations relating to some security matters in parts of the country.
The statement further assured the public that the law will appropriately take its course.
