Kemi Olunloyo has been awarded a gold medal for taking part in the Nigeria Prison Sports Festival. The controversial journalist, who was recently released from prison on bail, while awaiting trial, shared pictures on
Instagram and wrote:
#BREAKING Today I was awarded a gold medal in the Nigerian Prison Sports festival which lasted 3 weeks the week I left. Medal day was today at 10am. I was in court.
YES I enjoyed prison! It is not the best place. My complainant cannot break me. I made the best out of a bad situation. I can even make doughnuts and egg buns too.
Wardress Sylva taught me. You can also learn hairdressing and sewing. Most of the females are not interested, just a few.
Ijeoma is on death row and she made the dress I wore on my exit and the one I wore at the news conference. These services were FREE. I also did medication counseling free for inmates as a pharmacist.
My 81days was not to “correct or rehabilitate” me. I was awaiting trial. Nigeria does not have city jails so we are mixed with convicts. They wear blue, we wear green. That is why I call everyone that called me ex-convict an illiterate.
I have not been convicted of a crime yet. Take corrections and improve your knowledge of the English language. It was a rousing welcome for me as prison staff have never seen me with makeup and traditional clothing.
They said I looked good. Even lawyers in court were all talking. Thank you Mr. Chibuike the sports director awarding me the medal. I am now in the history books of Nigeria.
Magistrate court tomorrow. The plaintiff and his lawyers were no show in federal high court. NPF lawyers were pissed as always
