Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have raided the Kaduna residence of arrested terrorists’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu.  

Mamu, who is the lead negotiator between terrorists and passengers kidnapped from a Kaduna-bound train in March, was arrested in Egypt on September 6, 2022. 

 In a statement, DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, who confirmed Mamu’s arrest in a statement on Wednesday, said the agency was grilling him over security issues.

The operatives reportedly came with about 20 vehicles in what a witness described as a commando-styled operation in the early hours of Thursday, September 8.

“They ransacked the house and carted away documents, phones and laptops,”

 It was also gathered that the operatives went to his office in Kaduna after raiding his house.
