Tukur Mamu: The DSS has dropped its lawsuit against an ex-terrorist negotiator.


The Department of State Services (DSS) withdrew a suit filed in a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday to detain former terrorist negotiator Tukur Mamu for another 60 days after his arrest.
A.M. Danlami, counsel for the DSS, told Justice Nkeonye Maha shortly after the matter was called for hearing.
On the day’s cause list, the suit FHC/ABJ/CS/1619/2022 between SSS and Tukur Mamu was listed for further proceedings.During the resumption of the hearing, Danlami, who sought to withdraw the case, stated that events had taken precedence.

“My Lord, this case is scheduled for hearing today.” However, events have taken precedence over the issue. “We would like to withdraw the suit,” he stated.

Following the filing of the application,the suit was dismissed by Justice Maha.
“The application of the learner counsel is successful. “The application is hereby dismissed as withdrawn,” she ruled.

According to NAN, the security agency moved an ex-parte motion on Sept. 13 seeking a court order to detain Mamu for 60 days in the first instance, pending the conclusion of its investigation, through its lawyer, Ahmed Magaji.
The FHC/ABJ/CS/1617/2022 otion was dated and filed on September 12.It urged the court to grant it relief so that it could complete its investigation into Mamu, who had been in charge of negotiating the release of the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers kidnapped in March.
