Father of controversial blogger, Kemi Olunloyo has publicly denounced her following her numerous unfounded attacks at him and other notable individuals in the society.
Kemi’s father, Omololu Olunloyo is a Second Republic governor of old Oyo State and a respected elder statesman.
In an emotion laden statement released on Thursday, Omololu revealed that his daughter had a history of mental illness and had refuted efforts by family and friends to get help for her.
As he apologised to everyone who has been attacked by his estranged daughter, the heartbroken father described the statements credited to her as “utterly irresponsible”, “libellous” and “repeatedly painful.”
Omololu, who was a governor under the umbrella of the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), in his apology stated that even he and his family are not protected from the scathing attacks of the blogger.
He tendered an unreserved apology, “I would like to apologise without reservation to all persons affected. I hope and pray they would graciously accept the apology.”
He extended his apology to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, the General Oversea of Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, the founder of the Synagogue Church of all Nations, Temitope Joshua and former President Olusegun Obasanjo among others.
He said, “There seems to be a curious pair of writers, an Aboderin resident in Ireland and Kemi Olunloyo, who sometimes curiously act separately and sometimes in union. Some of their most unfortunate victims are their half siblings.
“Others of higher status in the society (like) ex-president Obasanjo and quite recently, clergy men with large respectable following, such as the General Oversea of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, a brilliant fellow mathematician, an inspired Bishop Oyedepo, the inimitable Reverend T.B Joshua, all learned men.
“She includes me, her father. All four of us she dubs ritualists. Of course, none of us, as far as I know, is anything of sort. She has gone so far as to accuse us of various sexual crimes and gone too far to give social media itself a very dubious name, in term of uncontrolled freedom to assault others.”
Furthermore, he condemned the attack by Kemi on veteran Nollywood actor, Jide Kosoko following the death of his wife, Henrietta on June 6.
Kemi had called Kosoko a ritualist following the tragic passage of his wife.
Omololu revealed that Kemi’s behaviour had several times put her in trouble with the law in Ireland and in the United States even adding that the late Ooni of Ife, Okunade Sijuwade, once bailed her out of jail.
“Of Late, in the last four weeks or so, she had had the audacity to pass irrelevant and hopeless comments on one of our national talented artists, prince Jide Kosoko, whom I admire so much, calling him a black widower as he has unfortunately lost three wives.
“I had thought at 52, Kemi will further train her mind and cease to be an embarrassment to herself and member of her nuclear, extended family and to the general public. I thank pastors and psychiatrists like Dr. Lasebikan, who had gone to great lengths at their own personal cost to restrain her from excesses and recklessness. I dissociate myself entirely form her conducts and statements.
“She must accept responsibility for her actions and utterances as well as the consequences. My condemnation is total and not in any instance defensible. My position is absolutely clear. She has gone too far and needlessly so,” he wrote.
