Kemi Omololu Olunloyo, a journalist in Nigeria, on Thursday faced the full wrath of Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) after labelling Kenya as unsafe.
Through a tweet, Kemi stated that she would not be attending the African Women in Media 2019 due to a terror threat.
She referred to the recent attack at the Mogadishu Mayor’s office saying Al-Shabaab terrorists often operate in Kenya.
“Kenyan fans, I will no longer be attending #AWiM19 African Women in Media due to a SECURITY THREAT as a result of the Al-Shabab bomb attack today in the Mogadishu Mayor's office.
“I will not be in #Nairobi tomorrow. Al-Shabab terrorists often operate in Kenya #Dusit #KemiOlunloyo,” she said.
This did not go down well with KOT who quickly engaged her in a war of words.
