EMBATTLED journalist and
blogger, Kemi Olunloyo, has
lamented the poor state of
Nigerian prisons.
She, therefore, stated that the
prison system in the country
needs urgent reform.
She said this via her Twitter
after she regained her freedom
from the Port Harcourt Prison on
Monday.
Olunloyo, who is the daughter
of a former governor of Oyo State,
Dr Omololu Olunloyo, also called
on the Senator representing Oyo
Central at National Assembly,
Monsurat Sunmonu, to draft and
present a bill on Prison Reforms
to the Senate.
She wrote: “Need to testify
at Nigerian Senate on Press
Freedom, Prison reforms in
Nigeria. Senator Monsurat
Sunmonu, please let’s draft a bill.
Democracy not Dictatorship.”
It could be recalled that
Olunloyo was arrested in Lagos
in March and arraigned at
the Federal High Court, Port
Harcourt, Rivers State, for
alleged cybercrime.
She was said to have published
a story believed to be capable of
defaming a cleric, Pastor David
Ibiyeomie.
The court ordered Olunloyo to
be remanded in prison custody
until she meets the bail conditions
stipulated for her release.
