DSS clamps down on Mamu’s associates, arrests father-in-law

The Department of State Services (DSS) has arrested Abdullahi Mashi, father-in-law to embattled bandits’ negotiator, Tukur Mamu.

The arrest of Mashi is the part of the continued clampdown on associates of Mamu.

According to Daily Trust, DSS operatives also visited the house of Mamu’s brother-in-law, Ibrahim Tinja, who was arrested and deported with the Desert Herald Publisher on Wednesday.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that operatives of the secrete police arrested Mamu and four members of his family at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport on Wednesday after they were deported from Egypt on the request of Nigeria’s intelligence agencies.

The publisher was said to be travelling to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj together with his two wives, his eldest son, Faisal Mamu and brother-in-law, Ibrahim Tinja.

While Mamu’s wives have been released, the publisher, his son and brother-in-law are still in custody.
