Despite being granted bail by a Magistrate Court, the controversial journalist was sent back to prison by a higher court.
The new order sending back the daughter of a one-time governor of Oyo State, Victor Olunloyo to prison was made by a Federal High Court which refused to grant her bail.
Olunloyo who has had issues with many celebrities in the country was arrested after she published a story about a popular man of God, Pastor David Ibiyomie, who felt she had defamed his character and maligned his image.
The cleric had petitioned the Inspector General of Police and Olunloyo was arrested alongside a Port Harcourt-based journalist and publisher, Samuel Walson over the alleged publication and they were slammed into prison.
The charges against Walson were, however, dropped by the Federal High Court which granted him full bail while Kemi Olunloyo was driven back to the Port Harcourt Prison.
