Kunle Olawunmi expresses displeasure to discover politicians are behind terrorists attack in Nigeria


Terrorists who have been ravaging the country, wrecking havoc, destroying the security and peace in the country, claims the major backbone behind them were politicians in high political offices. This was revealed by a former Naval officer, Kunle Olawunmi.

The suspected terrorists who gave this information are under the custody of military authorities. The information was given when they were caught and interrogated under intense torture.

Olawunmi decided to announce his displeasure at the fact that, politicians are the root cause of the tragedy ongoing in Nigeria. He did an interview on Channels Television Breakfast programme, also with Sunrise Daily.

Olawunmi remarks reads, “It is an aberration; you don’t attack the Nigerian Defence Academy and get away with it.

“That is the time the terrorists have to profile our security environment. It has always been the case. I have served the military intelligence for the past 35 years. Our problem is religious and socio-cultural.”

“I told General Olonisakin then that the centre of this problem cannot be solved the same way we solved the problem of the Niger Delta. The Niger Delta problem was solved during (Ex-President Umaru Yar’adua) basically by me and I told them that we can’t use that same template for Boko Haram.

“I told General Olonisakin to look at the centre of gravity of the problem. I was made a member of the committee in 2016-2017 including (Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru) that died.

“I told them that the centre of gravity of Boko Haram in Nigeria is the sponsors of the programme. It was beyond us because the job we needed to do was kinetic but we cannot resolve issues of sponsors of Boko Haram that were in Buhari’s government that we know them.

‘’That was why we couldn’t pursue that aspect that could have resolved the issue because we need to arrest people.

 “Recently, 400 people were gathered as sponsors of Boko Haram, why is it that the Buhari government has refused to try them? Why can’t this government bring them to trial if not that they are partisan and part of the charade going on?

“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 at the NDA)?” he queried, adding that terrorist financiers want to turn Nigeria to Taliban type of country.’’
