The Defence Headquarters has dismissed reports that Commodore Kunle Olawunmi (rtd) was declared wanted by the Defence Intelligence Agency over anti-Buhari’s interview as unfounded.

The Director Defence Information Major General Benjamin Sawyerr, in a terse statement, said Olawunmi was only invited via a text message to share intelligence with the Armed Forces.

The statement reads: “Please gentlemen of the press. There is a Sahara reporters online news that the DIA has ordered for the arrest of Commodore Olawunmi rtd. This is false and not true. We are issuing a statement soon.

“You recall he said he has privileged to lots of information during his media interview on Channels. He was only invited through text message to come over as a retired military officer to shed more lights with the information that would assist the AFN to further fight against terrorism, insurgency and banditry.

“Also recall that the CDS has just concluded his tour of the six Geo-Political Zones where he solicited the support and cooperation of retired military officers. Arrest of persons was not part of it”.
