Family Members Reveal How DSS Operatives Raided Mamu’s Residence, Office



Operatives of Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday raided the residence and office of the negotiator between terrorists and Abuja-Kaduna train passengers, Tukur Mamu, carting away computers and documents.


A family source said about 50 heavily armed DSS personnel stormed the house around 12:30 am in commando style and turned the house and office upside down as they searched the entire compound.


“We were awakened by the pandemonium that announced the arrival of the officers who came in a large motorcade and were armed to the teeth.


“They conducted a random search in the house and his office but nothing incriminating or suspicious was found.

“But they seized all our handheld gadgets and computers. We are still in trauma and shock over this intimidation. We call on conscientious Nigerians not to allow this injustice to prevail.

“This is a man who puts his life at stake for the sake of others, yet all he could get was harassment, intimidation and threats to life. This can only happen in a country that has suppressed the rule of law and rights of its citizens,” the family source said.

The source said the DSS operatives did not show search warrants before raiding Mamu’s house and office.

According to the source, nothing incriminating was found during the raid, adding that DSS forced one of Mamu’s children to sign a document they prepared without allowing him to read the content.
