Self-acclaimed Investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has revisited an old beef she had with actress, Ada Ameh, who passed away recently.
The 48-year-old thespian slumped on Sunday, July 17, and was rushed to a hospital in Delta state where she was pronounced dead.
Following news of her death, Kemi took to her Instagram page to recount an online brawl she had with the actress in December 2021, during Sylvester Oromoni’s case.
It would be recalled that Sylvester, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, was allegedly beaten and fed a corrosive substance by his seniors because he reportedly refused to join their cult. He sadly died from the injuries sustained during the attack.
His death sparked outrage online as netizens called for the culprits to be brought to book. However, Kemi Olunloyo went online to blame the minor for the attack, alleging that he willingly allowed his seniors to beat him up so he could join their cult.
This infuriated Ada Ameh who took to her Instagram page to lambast her for undermining the pain of losing a child, and called her a disgrace to motherhood. Watch here
Well, months after the incident and hours after Ada Ameh was confirmed dead, Kemi went online to bring up the issue again while praying for the actress’ soul to rest in peace.
“#AdaAmeh DEATH: I learned Ada was dining yesterday with friends and suddenly slumped and collapsed. She threatened me and urged her fans to beat me for exposing the truth about the #SylvesterOromoni case in December 2021. She called me crazy, mad and mentally derailed. I’m non of that. I was simply doing my job as a journalist defending media freedom.
Many of the fans sent me 900 terrorizing iMessages and 454 WhatsApp messages after Adetoun Onajobi posted my former phone number and old apartment online. Toun started the beating threats and Tacha Akide even tweeted that anyone going to beat investigative journalist should film it. My children 35, 31 and 21 in America were also terrorized. They feared for my life. Even the Landlord and other tenants were worried.
I kept every single message. Tonto Dikeh also did the same with every celebrity threatening an investigative journalist for not liking outcomes of my work. They could have just unfollowed me. Today I no longer practice journalism in Nigeria. I am a Wellness & Drug abuse education and prevention expert and Ada is no longer here. Live a good life, never take anyone for face value.
Ada Ki Olorun fi Orun ke e⚰️🇳🇬☹️”
