Kemi Olunloyo, a controversial investigative journalist, announced her plan to end her life on social media.
The 59-year-old journalist opened out on her verified Facebook page, sharing the reasons for her choice to consider suicide.
She was quite depressed over the severe abuse she had been subjected to after making a false prediction that Nigeria would lose to South Africa in the AFCON semifinals.
Kemi Olunloyo continued by emphasising that her forecast was an observation rather than a prophesy. She disclosed that she was about to take a hazardous drug called Sniper.
She linked her choice to the football match prediction and connected it to the intense bullying she had experienced.
She bemoaned the constant harassment she had experienced in a heartfelt message.
“I’m about to drink that Sniper now.
“Continue bullying me. I’ve done my 30 yrs February 9th 1994-2024. I left the country for you. I didn’t give anyone a prophecy about a game I know nothing about.
“I simply said Tyla has a strong spiritual energy that will make Nigeria lose and I dreamt 3 of our players were ill.
“Once I’m dead you will be happy. You ruined my career the last decade of it.
“Today marks my 30th year in a profession my own people forced me out of.
“Dr Kemi Olunloyo
February 9th 2024.”
