Kemi Olunloyo, the embattled journalist, has spoken out about her plans after human rights lawyer Femi Falana petitioned the Nigerian Police to interview her.
Remember how Falana asked that security operatives summon the journalist over her claim that 12-year-old Sylvester Oromoni had agreed to join a cult at his school, Dowen College?
Nigerians were outraged by her comments, with several celebrities threatening to assault her.
Kemi Olunloyo, in a statement made available to Ijaw News, indicated that she will sue Falana and the Oromoni family for damages.
She claimed that she had not been invited by the police to the funeral of the deceased youngster and that the petition was a hoax.
Falana was accused by Kemi Olunloyo of attempting to use scare tactics on her, as he reportedly did on previous regimes.
The polarizing journalist also recommended the Oromoni family to terminate Falana, claiming that the human rights lawyer was nothing more than a nuisance.
Kemi Olunloyo said: “Femi Falana is an overrated SAN who feels he’s above the law. He carries a dangerous ego which he feels he can use to intimidate the government and protect the people. I’m planning to sue him for dragging my professional reputation asking police to invite me for specifically my “reckless statement” concerning Sylvester Oromoni a fake petition we are yet to see.
“Reckless what? He wants to use scare tactics he uses with successive governments. If in fact, he’s filing on behalf of the Oromoni family I will be suing them too for damages. The Oromoni family should fire him and use their senses. Falana is a distraction and one who loves media trials.”
She added that “The era of those who spoil my name in this country Nigeria will end soon. I know my legal rights. I have information that could make or break this case designed to ruin the reputation of so many others.”
