Ex-Naval Officer, Navy Commodore Kunle Olawunmi has been declared wanted by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) over an interview granted to Channels TV.
He made statements castigating President Muhammadu Buhari in the explosive interview.
Olawunmi had alleged that some Boko Haram sponsors were still in the Buhari’s government and that nothing had been done to them.
He alleged that Buhari has a plan to turn Nigeria into an Islamic nation, adding that some governors and senators were among those sponsoring Boko Haram.
“You remember this Boko Haram issue started in 2012 and I was in the military intelligence at that time. We arrested those people. My organisation actually conducted interrogation and they (suspects) mentioned names.
”I can’t come on air and start mentioning names of people that are presently in government that I know that the boys that we arrested mentioned. Some of them are governors now, some of them are in the Senate, some of them are in Aso Rock.
“Why should a government decide to cause this kind of embarrassment and insecurity to the sense of what happened yesterday (Tuesday attack on Nigerian Defence Academy)?”
The DIA has been quoted as saying it only invited Olawunmi to come to the agency to tell them who the sponsors of Boko Haram were.
