Investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has tackled Femi Falana (SAN) following reports that he filed a petition against her.
It was earlier reported that Falana asked the police to invite Olunloyo for questioning over her comment about Sylvester Oromoni, who died after he was allegedly tortured by his fellow students for refusing to join their cult.
However, Olunloyo has taken to Facebook to slam Falana for ‘lying’ to the public because no petition was filed against her.
According to her, even if she gets invited by the police, she can’t disclose the identity of the person who told her the alleged information about Sylvester because journalists protect their source.
“Dear Mr Falana, we have no petition signed by you asking the police to invite me for questioning. Pls stop lying to the public. No US human rights lawyer petitions the police to question a journalist. Journalists protect the source. I cannot mention names and will plead the 5thInviting me will seriously DAMAGE Sylvester Oromoni’s case. I’m an independent journalist. Get that into your head Falana. Let the cops do their investigation and I do mine. Can you petition police to invite BBC or CNN? Your ignorance does not excuse stupidity. Serve us the petition. War is coming Falana
