Controversial Nigerian journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has condemned the ongoing #EndSARs protest and further encouraged the Federal Government to shut down social media.
The investigative journalist considers the fight against police brutality and harassment of Nigerian youths as unwarranted and an unnecessary cause.
In a tweet, Dr. Kemi Olunloyo stated that such a move is not so special as countries like China, Turkey, and Tokyo have once shut down the internet in such circumstances.
“China did it Turkey did it Togo did it I’m an international Journalist and I support the Government SHUTTING DOWN @Twitter @instagram and @Facebook during the #EndSarsNow uprising. Last week I said this country will shut down in a week, the same ppl abusing me. #ShutltAllDown.” She wrote.

Nkem Jacob: Dr Kemi. how did you feel when the police/SARS embarrassed you , your child , and your signee .. on your way back from the studio?
I remember how you came down from the car, did a 360 turn .. and began threatening them , asking them if they knew who you are .. at that point you remembered the position your father has/had and how many people you know in Nigeria .. you also spoke about the places you have worked and your international recognition..etc
Dr Kemi. You have forgotten that most people being harassed have no body to speak for them .. most are genuine people who work hard and are naturally clean with good taste and sense of fashion and they get killed ..
And the only advice you thought of in your head and in your mind is for the government to shutdown social media.
Most of us have no where to go aside this Nigeria .. you say what ever you feel like because you probably have a dual citizenship.
