Controversial blogger gains freedom from prison

The media personality was released from prison yesterday after meeting bail requirements.

Kemi Olunloyo, seen in a prison uniform. was released on Monday, January 22, 2018.

The blogger who made a reputation for being a critic landed herself in a lawsuit following defamatory comments directed at Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the General Overseer of the Salvation Ministries.

This led to her arrest on March 5, 2017, in Ibadan where she is resided.

Olunloyo was however granted bail by Chief Magistrate, Alatuwo Elkanah Fubara, but was later sent back to prison due to her inability to meet conditions set for her release.

Before her arrest, the blogger often made the news round for her open criticism of public figures.

Most notable on her list is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor G.O Adeboye.

In an interview with Pulse TV, the media personality accused the clergyman of being a murderer, alleging that the latter killed a policeman in the year 1971.

According to Olunloyo, the RCCG leader had confused the deceased for an armed robber.
