Ex-Naval Officer Declared Wanted By FG Over Anti-Buhari Interview On Channels TV

By Newsie Events Media:

Following his No-holds-barred interview on Channels TV ‘s breakfast programme, “Sunrise Daily”, last Wednesday, the Federal Government has reportedly declared a former Navy Commodore, Kunle Olawunmi wanted over his revelations during the interview.

Olawunmi had disclosed that Boko Haram terrorists named current governors, senators and Aso Rock officials as their sponsors during an interrogation which he was part of, but the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government had shown unwillingness to investigate the high-profile politicians for reasons best known to him.

The Professor of Global Security Studies has said, “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)?” he queried, adding that terrorist financiers want to turn Nigeria to a Taliban type of country.

According to Punch, a competent source said that the intelligence agencies including the Department of State Services and the Defence Intelligence Agency have since launched a manhunt for Olawunmi.

When contacted, DIA spokesperson, Major Afolashade Ojolowo, said he has been on leave and could not confirm the development.

Newsie Events recalled that Channels TV anchors, Chamberlain Usoh and Kayode Okikiolu were summoned by the National Broadcasting Commission NBC, over  alleged anti-Buhari comments made by Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom during an interview on ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Tuesday.

The Governor expressed his disappointment with the way the Presidency is handling the nation’s security challenges.
Newsie Events also reported that NBC moved to sanction Channels TV over what it described as “inciting, divisive and unfair comments” made by Ortom on the programme.

It would be recalled that in May, a fine of N5million was slammed on Channels TV and Inspiration FM lagos by NBC for alleged infractions of broacasting code.
Channels TV had featured the spokesperson for the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, Emma Powerful, on its ‘Politics Today’ programme.
