There are speculations that she was picked up over a controversial statement she made recently.
In a message she shared on Instagram on former President Obasanjo’s birthday, she claimed that her father, former Governor of Oyo State, Victor Omololu Olunloyo, and Obasanjo, used her younger brother, Oyeleke for rituals in 1999.
The controversial journalist said she would upload the ritual video on YouTube soon for all to see.
She wrote, “We are raised in the Olunloyo family to always tell the truth.
“In 2014, my dad told me that Obasanjo KILLED OYELEKE!
“That when my 17-year-old brother went to open the gate for you [her father] March 5th 1999 on his birthday he [Obasanjo] dropped charms there.
“Oyeleke died later that year in the UK when a drunk driver hit him.”
“Before my brother died at 17 years old in December 24th 1999, he told my mom and I that he was taken by my dad and his concubine Ronke Shonaike who parades herself as Ronke Olunloyo to Obasanjo’s house and Ibefun, a ritualist den where he was told to bath in human blood preparing him for a good journey to school abroad and do well.
“They sacrificed my brother. I will never stop exposing them. My investigative journalism spares no one. I stopped talking to my father in 2015.
“Many of you saw the ritualist videos on Facebook and today onYouTube.com/hnnafricatv, I will transfer them.
“My Facebook page is closed indefinitely as I deactivated it. I will go there and transfer the videos to YouTube.
“Subscribe to it as I will upload shocking footage. If you have never walked in my shoes, keep shut.
“Ritualism is real and many Nigerians are in denial of it. Happy Birthday in heaven. Oyeleke would have been 35 years today, possibly with a wife and family. My dad and Obasanjo took it all using a birthday, March 5th.”
