An arrest warrant was issued for Turkish folk singer Gokmen Ürü over his alleged ties to the Gulen movement.
State-run Anadolu news agency said Sunday that a prosecutor in Turkey’s eastern province of Mardin issued an arrest warrant for Gokmen and that police raided several locations across the country to detain him.
The singer is believed to be living abroad.
Turkish government blames Gulenists for the July 15, 2016 failed coup while the group denies involvement.
More than 150,000 have passed through police custody and 90,000 have been arrested over ties to the movement since the summer of 2016.
