The Department of State Services (DSS) has accused Tukur Mamu, the Kaduna train attack negotiator, of aiding and abetting acts of terrorism.
This was made known in an affidavit in support of an ex-parte motion filed before Justice Nkeonye Maha of the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Justice Maha had issued a ruling on the ex-parte motion moved by counsel to the DSS, Ahmed Magaji, granting the security agency permission to detain Mamu for 60 more days pending the conclusion of its investigation.
The security agency alleged that Mamu, the publisher of Desert Herald, was involved in the funding of international and local terrorism.
It claimed that Mamu shares information with terrorist groups, resulting in the escalation of bandit attacks in the country.
