Following their deportation from Egypt at the request of Nigeria’s intelligence agencies, Mamu and four members of his family were detained on Wednesday at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport.
The publisher, his two wives, his eldest son, Faisal Mamu, and his brother-in-law, Ibrahim Tinja, were rumored to be making the shorter hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia with him.
It was gathered that while Mamu’s two wives, Fatima Bashir Mamu and Aisha Salisu Mamu, have been released, the publisher, his eldest son, Faisal Tukur Mamu and brother-in-law are still in custody.
The DSS confirmed on Thursday that appropriate security agencies have executed valid search warrants on the residence and office of Mamu.
