The Department of State Services DSS has confirmed the detention of the self-acclaimed Kaduna train hostage negotiator, Tukur Mamu.
The Public Relations Officer of DSS Peter Afunanya, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
He said the clarification followed series of enquires in respect of the arrest or otherwise of Mamu.
Afunanya said the arrest followed a request by Nigeria’s Military, Law Enforcement and Intelligence Community to their foreign partners to bring back Mamu to the country.
He said the request was for him to answer critical questions on ongoing investigations relating to some security matters in parts of the country.
The DSS spokesman said the law would appropriately take its course in the matter.
