Tukur Mamu: Family members accuse DSS of false allegations


The family of the publisher of Desert Herald, Malam Tukur Mamu, has accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of falsely laying allegations on their son with the intent to tarnish his image.

According to the family, the DSS had in a press statement made blanket statements without giving details despite the critical question of national security which in the first place, is the underlying reason for Mamu’s arrest.

They said it views the development as a deliberate distortion of facts with the intention of twisting narratives about Tukur Mamu with an exception.

The family said the DSS made allusions that military accoutrements and hard currency were found in the home of Tukur Mamu with a view to swaying public opinion against the publisher who has made supreme sacrifices towards nixing the raging insecurity in the land.

It said the military accoutrements found in the home of the publisher belong to his nephew who is an officer of the Nigerian Navy.

Tukur Mamu who played the role of a father, was responsible for the upkeep and school expenses of the nephew till he enrolled in the Nigerian Navy.

“Again in its desperation to smear the name of Mamu, the DSS said it has found a huge amount of hard currency without stating how much it found.

“It is incumbent for the general public to know that the total amount of the hard currency found in Mamu’s house if converted into naira is less that N1.5m, yet the DSS is trying to make the situation look bad by saying huge haul of hard currency was found in his house.
