Spread the love

Mr Tukur Mamu, former terrorist negotiator, on Tuesday, pleaded not guilty to a 10-count charge bordering on terrorism financing, among others preferred against him by the Federal Government.

Mamu, who was arraigned by the office of the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) on behalf of the FG before Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court, Abuja,, denied having allegiance with the terrorists.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) earlier reports that Mamu was billed for arraignment before Justice Ekwo today.

NAN reports that Justice Nkeonye Maha of a sister court on Sept. 13, 2022, gave the Department of State Services (DSS) the go-ahead to detain the former terrorists’ negotiator for 60 days to enable it conclude its investigation on Mamu, who led the negotiation with the terrorists for the release of the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers kidnaped in March 2022.

The charge was signed by Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation, Mr M.B. Abubakar.
