Just after a Magistrate Court granted the popular controversial journalist bail to the tune of N200, 000 and she was about to take her leave, the Rivers state Federal High Court quashed the earlier ruling and denied her bail.
You would recall that last week, the Magistrate judge was not available to hear the case due to ill health but yesterday, he granted her bail only for a higher court in the state to refuse her release and continue to remand her in prison.
It was gathered that Pastor David Ibiyeomie will also appear as a witness to explain how he was affected by the publication.
According to Daily Post, Kemi pleaded not guilty to the fresh charges when arraigned before Justice H.O Oshomah, who instructed the police to ensure diligent prosecution of the matter, stressing that he does not intend to have the accused person remanded for long.
However, charges against the Port Harcourt-based publisher, Samuel Walson, were dropped.
Olunloyo and Walson were arrested over an alleged online defamatory publication against a popular cleric, Pastor David Ibiyomie of the Salvation Ministries Church.
