It will be recalled that Kemi Olunloyo made headlines recently after she accurately broke the News of the death of Abba Kyari.
Controversial journalist Kemi Olunloyo had reported weeks ago that a very high ranked member of President Buhari’s cabinet had died. She also stated that they cannot hide it like they did the death of former President Yar Adua- “You cannot hide it like Yar’Adua”.
She also said she’ll give the government the liberty of telling the citizens because she values “NATIONAL SECURITY OF NIGERIA”.
She received a lot of backlash from people and nobody took her seriously.
But the sudden announcement of the death of Abba Kyari last week made many believe Madam Kemi Olunloyo is a good and reputable journalist because this isn’t the first time she has talked about issues before they were reported.
