The Department of State Services says the outcome of the investigations it carried out on the bandits’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu, is mindboggling.
Mamu, a Kaduna-based publisher, was arrested on Tuesday by security operatives in Cairo, Egypt, for his alleged involvement in collecting ransom for the release of several abducted passengers of the March 28 Abuja-Kaduna train attack.
The DSS warned those making comments it described as ‘’unguarded’’ to stop forthwith and await court proceedings.
A Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi, had accused the DSS of terrorism for arresting his media consultant, Mamu.
In a statement last night, DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said the Service should be left alone to carry out its duty.
Afunanya said the DSS would not make further comments on Mamu’s arrest since the court will determine its course.
‘’The Department of State Services has followed, with keen observation, overzealous comments by sections of the public in view of issues relating to the arrest and investigation of Tukur Mamu.
‘’The Service wishes that it’s not distracted with some of the skewed narratives pervading the media space.
‘’Instead, it requests to be left alone to concentrate on the ongoing investigations, the outcomes of which have remained mind-boggling.”
