We reported earlier that Controversial journalist, Kemi Olunloyo was granted N200,000 bail by a Chief’s Magistrate Court. Now Punch is reporting that she has been remanded in prison by a Federal High Court in Rivers state, thus denying her bail for the second time.
However, charges against the Port Harcourt-based publisher, Samuel Walson, were dropped. Below is how Punch Reported it:
FOR the second time in two weeks, a journalist and blogger, Kemi Olunloyo has been refused bail and remanded in Port Harcourt prison custody.
This time, it was the Federal High Court in Rivers State that denied the daughter of the former governor of Oyo State and remanded her in prison after a Magistrate Court had granted her bail.
However, charges against the Port Harcourt-based publisher, Samuel Walson, were dropped.
Olunloyo and Walson were arrested over an alleged online defamatory publication against a frontline cleric, Pastor David Ibiyomie.
