Former Minister of Culture and Tourism Femi Fani-Kayode has asked the Department of State Services, DSS, to investigate the link between terrorists’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu – who’s currently being detained –  and a leading figure in the Peoples Democratic Party.

Mamu was arrested with his family Tuesday and repatriated Wednesday.

Confirming the arrest, the DSS said the suspect was in their custody, adding that he had questions to answer.

Reacting to the arrest, Fani-Kayode tweeted a photo of Mamu and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential flag-bearer, Atiku Abubakar, asking the secret police to investigate the link between the suspect and “a leading figure in the PDP.”

He commended the DSS for the arrest, asking the service to go after the suspect’s associates.

Former Aviation Minister Fani-Kayode wrote: “The biggest breakthrough in the fight against BH & ISWAP is the arrest, repatriation & detention of Tukur Mamu who is an accomplice to the terrorists and who negotiates for ransoms on their behalf.

“I commend the noble & patriotic efforts of the DSS and NIA in this respect.

“I urge them to go after his associates and other highly placed individuals who are close to him and that have also spoken & negotiated for the terrorists in the past.

“Finally, I call on them to establish precisely what the link is between him and a leading figure in the PDP.”
