“Naira Marley’s Arrest Is A Scapegoat Trial,” Says Kemi Olunloyo

Controversial journalist, Kemi Olunloyo, has been openly advocating for Naira Marley's release, and since the release of the rapper, she has taken to supporting him and encouraging him to do good. In a live video on Instagram, the blogger admitted that Naira Marley is the best act Nigeria has produced in a long while.

The journalist, who is said to be suffering from PTSD and has solicited for funds from fans in order to travel outside the country and have herself properly treated, might have gotten some help from the rapper hence her public support.

She has expressed concern about the poor justice system in Nigeria, not unlike Naira Marley who did the same on his Instagram live recently. Marley, in the live video, had agreed to fight for inmates who were wrongfully arrested without being charged to court. Kemi has also complained about many innocent people wallowing in prison. She also believes Naira Marley and his cohorts will be discharged from all charges levelled against them because his arrest was a wild goose chase.

Read her post below:

Spoke to @nairamarley for about 70 mins over the weekend and he lamented on some inmates he met awaiting trial for up to 9 years or more. Even the food shortage in the prison. In Port Harcourt prison we had women awaiting trial for years, no trial for kidnapping charges who were arrested at someone else’s house in the wrong place at the wrong time. Those of you who call us ex-convicts better know that we have not been convicted and when it happens to be your turn some day you may be denied bail and awaiting trial too mixed among dangerous convicts for YEARS. That’s how NPS works. I fought for Naira by giving a voice of a true activist to him. Many of his civil rights were violated. I educated him on some while we talked. His trial and case mates @zlatan_ibile @rahman_jago_ and the other dude will come out of this successfully. This is nothing but a “scapegoat trial”....#MyOpinion__
