Controversial journalist, Kemi Omololu Olunloyo, earlier today tweeted about a robbery attack on her household in Ibadan.

The US-trained media personality alleged that four armed men broke into her family home in Agodi GRA in Ibadan in the early hours of Friday morning.

Kemi said the thieves tied her 79-year-old mother and her musician son as they made away with cash and other valuables in the house.

"BREAKING 1:45am I heard loud noises downstairs at our family house in Agodi. It's now 2:38am About 4 armed men came in with guns, cutlass and different weapons, tied my 79yo mom up and everyone including my son @Richkjtmusic and my disabled brother. Pls help us call @PoliceNG," she wrote as she sort for help.

She then used the unfortunate incident to re-echo her shouts about the legalization of guns in Nigeria, pointing out that all four men would have been shot on sight if she had a gun.

"Family of an elderly Governor. Is your family safe? Been crying about legalizing guns 4 a long time. Even @nassnigeria is trying to reinstate gun licenses. In America all 4 men would be history now. Police has surrounded the house, my mom says nobody should open gate. Booby trap?"

As opposed to the usual hostilities she gets on many of her posts, Nigerians have been good to her this time around, sending out their best wishes, prayers and even offering help. Read sympathetic messages from Nigerians below.
