The Department of State Services (DSS) has given an update following the arrest of the publisher of Desert Herald, Tukur Mamu.
According to DSS, the outcome of the investigation it carried out on Mamu is mind-boggling.
Reacting to the comments made by Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, the service said it will not be distracted.
Recall that Gumi had accused the DSS of terrorism, and further asked the secret police to either release Mamu, who is his media consultant, or charge him to court immediately.
However in a statement released by DSS spokesperson Peter Afunanya, the service said that it should be left alone to carry out its duty.
He also asked the public to wait for the commencement of court proceedings.
The statement read: “The Department of State Services (DSS) has followed, with keen observation, overzealous comments by sections of the public in view of issues relating to the arrest and investigation of Tukur Mamu.
“The service wishes that it is not distracted with some of the skewed narratives pervading the media space.
“Instead, it requests to be left alone to concentrate on the ongoing investigations, the outcomes of which have remained mind-boggling.
“Meanwhile, the service will cease further comments on the subject matter since the court will determine its course.
“Consequently, the public is hereby enjoined to desist from making unguarded utterances and await the court proceedings.”
