Tukur Mamu, the man arrested for negotiating on behalf of terrorists is expected to appear before Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court, Abuja on Tuesday, 21 March 2023.
The case is being handled by the Office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF).
The charge was signed by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) of the Federation, M.B. Abubakar.
Justice Nkeonye Maha of the FHC, had, on September 13, 2022, approved Mamu’s detention at the Department of State Services (DSS).
Mamu led the negotiation with the terrorists to release the Abuja-Kaduna train passengers kidnapped in March 2022.
In the same month, the DSS raided his residence, where military kits, foreign currencies and other items were found. They will be presented in court as evidence.
Mamu was repatriated in September after he was intercepted in Cairo, the capital of Egypt, while en route to Saudi Arabia.
