Mamu, who is also the spokesman for Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, was said to have been arrested on Tuesday by INTERPOL at the Cairo International Airport while trying to connect a flight to Saudi Arabia.

Mamu, the publisher of Desert Herald Newspaper, has been in the limelight recently for his role in the release of victims of the train attack who were kidnapped by terrorists on March 28.

In August, he announced his withdrawal as the lead negotiator in securing the release of the remaining victims of the train attack after he alleged a threat to his life by the Nigerian government.
