In a recent interview with African Independent Television (AIT) Olukolade claimed that Borno governor Kashim Shettima and the state senators gave misleading information, which resulted in the waste of resources.
He narrated that Shettima had previously reported the movement of some 60 vehicles, and DHQ immediately sent an aircraft to search the area, but nothing was spotted.
He lamented that many pieces of information in connection with the abduction, no matter whether they are coming from the governor or from ordinary people, are “unhelpful because it tends to just want to wear us out and expend resources“.
“By the time aircraft goes on air, you can imagine the resources involved. We have a series of that experience… Once the information comes, a lot of action goes into place instantly.
According to him, although the security forces expect that the senators might provide useful information, in many cases “they also mislead”.
