Kemi was allegedly arrested for cyber crime and defamation of character, after she published a letter sent to her by a member of Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt. The letter was said to contain information accusing the pastor of the church, David Ibiyeomie (pictured below with Kemi) of having an affair with a popular Yoruba actress among other alleged atrocities.DAVID IBIYEOMIE-KOO-CVIt has been alleged that the pastor is behind Kemi’s arrest and hashtags like #FreeKOO, FreMadamHNN and FreeKemiOlunloyo have been created on social media to demand the journalist’s immediate release.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

Keep your head up Kemi!
