Controversial Nigerian blogger and activist, Kemi Olunloyo cried out on Thursday via her Instagram page that some unknown people attempted to kidnap her.
Olunloyo who said she attended a hearing of her case with Port Harcourt pastor, David Ibiyeomie, in Rivers State on Thursday took to Instagram to post an SOS message, saying her life was in danger.
According to her, the judge adjourned her case to December, and when she stepped out of the courtroom, an attempt was made by the Police undercover task force to abduct her.
She later clarified that her former lawyer, Fatai Lawal who excused himself from the case in August refused to submit her doctor’s report to the court so a bench warrant had been issued for her for the past three months. She said that unknown to her, the police were acting on the bench warrant and that was why they tried to abduct her.

#BREAKING The Nigerian police #Abuja undercover task force tried to kidnap me outside this courthouse now. Pls spread this message. My lawyer Eugene Meabe and other Rivers police foiled it. I feel unsafe here. The judge had just adjourned my case to December and they were probably not happy. The NPF IG task force has been stalking me since my release in June. Ibrahim Idris u have really crossed the line this time. The scene here is chaotic. My case needs to be DISMISSED. I'm never coming to Rivers again. My life is on danger and my case needs to be moved to Ibadan which was the real jurisdiction. I am in a court toilet hiding here looking at my lawyer and different security forces. #KemiOlunloyo
DEAR @POLICENG YOU ARE NOT REARRESTING ME TO SARS TILL OCTOBER 24th 2017 Im not OK. Fatai Lawal the lawyer I fired who was supposed to excuse me from the magistrate hearing for July did not show my doctors letter. Instead Lawal excused himself from the case which is what lawyers are supposed to do. A bench warrant was written to arrest me the next day. The other lawyers on the team had no idea as he represented that day. Since August 13th 2017 he has not released my legal files to the new lead lawyers. He has not picked up my calls. Yesterday in federal high court I was told he wanted money to release my files. An Afe Babalola pro bono lawyer who my dad sent and I never asked for wants money? I contacted Afe's office and he released the files this morning to us and thus the federal high court case postponed to December 2017. The magistrate is on the 24th October 2017 so what happened today was that Federal SARS wanted me behind bars today. Not my fault I didn't know there was a bench warrant for me. A corrupt lawyer and system caused this. I am sitting here now watching all of them. My blood presure is 160/100 and I'm battling bronchitis and police said they don't care if I DIED IN THEIR ARMS. They are now all in magistrate court for and emergency hearing. My complaint is still suing me in both magistrate and federal high court. A PASTOR… #KemiOlunloyo
3pm October 12th 2017 My arrest foiled by several lawyers protecting me from a potential KIDNAPPER. A Federal SARS officer with no ID or badge shown. They are now holding an emergency hearing at magistrate court now. A lawyer I fired set me up for this arrest. I fired Fatai Lawal because I shouldn't have been rearrested June 22nd if he had DONE HIS JOB! He removed himself from my case in court as they are supposed to do but was supposed to hand over my medical letter for 60 days in both courts. We are now back 60 days later but he NEVER told magistrate court. They tried to rearrest me on a August bench warrant. MR IGP, WHY DIDN'T THEY COME TO IBADAN TO ARREST ME IN TWO MONTHS???
