Days after her release from the Port Harcourt maximum prison where she spent 90 days in custody, controversial media personality Kemi Olunloyo has revealed that she has a host of medical issues to deal with.
Kemi who was freed last Wednesday for the third time in the last
12 months after she got involved in a case of defamation leveled against her by Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the founder and General Overseer of Salvation Ministry, said in a video posted on Instagram that she needs help to take care of her medical problems.
She wrote; “Good morning to all my fans. It is now 7 days I was released from #PHMax. I need your help! First I want to thank those that sent me funds to help with my food, medication and some clothing expenses and even upcoming travel home after my court case is adjourned and I’m done treating my medical problems.
“I have a whole host of medical issues. I am BEGGING YOU to help me! I am suffering from typhoid fever, malaria, eye injury in prison (punched), foot infection due to barefoot laws in cell and wet bathrooms and dirty toilets.
“Anxiety and depression, dental injury and swollen infected gums (bit a periwinkle put in our stew and I wasn’t told u suck the blue thing out instead of biting the shell. Please it’s not funny, I’ve never eaten this shellfish before and it’s more common in SS and SE), ear infections, waist and back pain from sleeping on the floor and chest pains.”
Two weeks before she was release from Port Harcourt prison, Kemi sent a holiday message to her well-wishers from detention saying she is in high spirits.
She was re-arrested a couple of months back for failing to fulfill bail conditions after initially spending 81 days behind bars following her arrest at her home in Ibadan in March last year.
This was sequel to a petition written to the Nigerian Police Force by Pastor Ibiyeomie who claimed she defamed him by publishing an adultery story about him which he said was unfounded.
