Another attempt by popular Twitter feminist, Glory Osei, accused by several social media users and former employees of fraud and staff maltreatment, to return to the microblogging met stiff resistance again on Friday.
Osei had maintained a low key lifestyle on social media since October 2019 when fraud allegations against her and husband Muyiwa Folorunsho went viral.
This is how it all happened:
Glory and her husband Muyiwa Folorunsho, founders of Divergent Enterprise – the parent company of a real estate firm LandLagos, PorkMoney and Hyberfactory and several other subsidiaries, were subjects of internet trolling on Monday 21 October, when several social media users who claimed to be former employees in the couple’s companies shared gory details of how they were maltreated, humiliated and fired after being denied their salaries.
What did she do?
In the heat of the uproar that trailed the allegations, Glory Osei and her husband became trending topics on Twitter Nigeria on October 21. Many also accused her of leading a Janus-faced lifestyle on social media by posing as a single lady despite being married to Muyiwa.
Glory who is popular on Twitter for her virile feminist advocacy and tweets suggesting she is against marriage had stayed off social media after sharing a short press statement as her reaction on October 21. She had since deleted the statement.
She staged an epic return in November with a 185-tweet thread full of tantrums and insults, but the attempt met a brick wall as social media users trolled her and continued accusing her of fraud.
In her infamous thread of tweets which further irked Twitter users, an unbothered Glory had thrown a jibe at those who claimed they were disappointed in her after her feminist advocacy made them see her as a mentor.
She told them:
“I heard you guys were mad MAD because I am married. Apparently I give “single girl” vibes ? FUCK ALL OF YOU!”
She didn’t stop there, in what looked like a ploy to shame her accusers and come out as an ‘iron lady’, Osei called the bluff of many netizens asking if their lives were better after they shamed her on Twitter.
Some described her strategy as wack and a poor attempt at image laundering and crisis management, a claim she had also refuted, saying she owes no one an explanation.
Again, she went awol after her epistle-like thread which failed to do damage control.
She then returned again on Friday by posting a photo of herself.
Immediately the tweet landed on the microblogging site, netizens reignited their trolling of Glory, using different innuendoes to describe her as a fraudster.
When it dawned on her that she is not going to win the battle on Twitter, Glory deactivated her account, this is after many users had accused her of blocking them after trolling her.
Her action has, once again, sparked reactions on Twitter, making her a subject of internet trolling.
Kelvin Odanz tweeted:
Glory Osei fucked up and instead of her to apologize, get a professional PR help or do giveaway and unlook, she came to bully people on the TL. She started unnecessary long stories, bragging,calling people broke and jobless. She deserves the counter bullying she’s getting.
Her company was committing employment fraud (allegedly). She was ripping people off. In the first instance, people wanted to hold her accountable. Forget the pedestrian hate/bants. She didn’t address any of the genuine concerns. Didn’t show any respect at all.
She never made contact with any of the former employees that were crying out on the TL. She just tagged them “disgruntled haters.” Then she took a break and came back few weeks later to bulldoze herself back to Twitter with bragging rights and arrogance.
See other reactions:
Funny how Glory Osei was welcomed back on IG.
For here… The gbas gbos continued like it was yesterday.
So, it’s official. These streets are brutal.
She quietly deactivated her account when she got tired of blocking savages.
Go hard or go home.
Glory Osei 0-2 Twitter

Glory Osei is just acting like a normal Nigerian scammer. When they realize they’re guilty and have been caught they start playing the victim card.

Glory Osei finally deactivated her twitter account?
Seems she had small shame after all that faux pas clapping back for being an A* fraud.
Her comeback was welcomed on IG but not on Twitter.
They’ll tell you the truth here whether you like it or not.

You people Suddenly defending Glory Osei with your fake empathy are Psychopaths.
Maintain that energy for Nigerian workers in private firms who have been used as slaves without pay.
Drop your tokenism, people can see through your fake empathy, rest.

Glory Osei could have said ‘I realize now that I was crap & out of order. I know that my business and myself wasn’t empathetic enough. In retrospect, I think we might have been cruel to some of our staff & investors. I will learn from this and do better. Thank you’

All Glory Osei had to do was issue an apology and make provisions on paying up salary owed but that is close to impossible cuz born unapologetic psychopath.

Covid-19: US records 2,000 deaths in 24 hours as cases pass 502,000
The United States has reported 2,108 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours, the highest daily increase in the country since the outbreak began, pushing the total US death toll to 18,777 on the one-month anniversary of the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
Meanwhile, the number of confirmed cases in the US topped 502,000 on Saturday, as the worldwide death toll surpassed 102,000.
The US is soon expected to overtake Italy in the grim position as the country with the highest number of fatalities. To date, Italy has registered at least 18,800 deaths.
With the number of infections worldwide now close to 1.7 million, including more than 376,000 recovered patients, the WHO has urged caution to countries considering easing restrictions put in place to stem the outbreak.
“The way down could be as dangerous as the way up if not managed properly,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
Ondo civil servant smuggles wife into service, places her on grade level 14
A civil servant in Ondo State has been arrested for allegedly smuggling his wife into the Ondo State Civil Service and placing her on grade level 14 and she had been collecting salaries.
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on Special Duties, Dr Doyin Odebowale, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect was caught as a result of the reform carried out by the state’s Head of Service, Mr Alex Aragbaye.
Odebowale did not, however, state how long the woman had been collecting salaries.
He added that other suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in various corrupt practices.
“We were able to discover that certain elements, whose names appear on the staff list, were never employed. A particular man employed his wife and placed her on grade level 14. She never attended an interview and she has been collecting salaries.
The governor’s aide stated that all the indicted civil servants had already been suspended, adding that they would face disciplinary actions.
How my wife and I were humiliated, manhandled by Nigeria Police at Moore Police Station Ile Ife By Dr Abiodun Olabanjo
My wife and l are Medical Doctors practising in Ile Ife Osun state. While my wife works with OSHMB. I have a private hospital in Ile Ife. l had to drive my wife to her place of work this morning with the private hospital ambulance (Name of the hospital well written on the ambulance with Doctors stickers on the windscreen). We had passed through several police barricades on the way.
On getting to one of the barricades in front of Moore Police station, we stopped and they asked for our mission on the road, despite the lockdown declared by the Government, and we patiently introduced ourselves and told them where we work and the reason why I had to drive my wife to her place of work and also informed them that I would be coming back soon as I had a patient that was been prepared for surgery before I left the hospital.
To my surprise on my way back from State Hospital Oke Ogbo Ile Ife where my wife works unlike other checkpoints where we had passed, where they didn’t need to stop us again for questioning on seeing the same hospital ambulance, the police at the barricade in front of Moore decided to stop us again and we did.
They asked me again for my identity and I explained to them but they insisted on parking the ambulance despite all explanation. After some persuasion one of the police personnel ordered the barricade to be removed, a car in the front and we followed but as we drove on we heard a loud bang at the back of the ambulance with someone in boy scout uniform calling other policeman claiming we broke through their barricade.
We, therefore, decided to stop but before I could open the car door to come down they started hitting me from the car, slapping and dragging me out of the car saying we wanted to hit one of them.
I was kicked several times by these about 30/50 people who were not even aware of what transpired. On citing this my wife quickly came down to stop the one slapping and hitting me but they didn’t even allow her they started beaten and dragging her too to the police station.
We were then ordered to be locked up in the cell by the Area Commander without any interrogation.
Instead, they collected all our four phones our shoes and other personal belongings including the car key without allowing us to make any form of communication either to our people nor our lawyer.
It was one of our patients who witnessed the event that quickly reported the case at our hospital from where our lawyer was contacted.
It was our lawyer in company of the patient that was waiting for emergency caesarian section that came to bail us at the police station. As we speak now, we were told they threatened to charge us to court tomorrow for trial even without investigation calling us all sorts of names and concorted lot of lies against us.
Our questions are….. Are Doctors not permitted to go to their places of work during this lockdown? Is the hospital ambulance not permitted to move during lockdown?
Was it normal for the police officer to collect all our phones without allowing us to communicate either with our people or our lawyer……. Our phones were ringing several times and they were dancing and singing to the tunes despite telling them that someone was in distress. It is our desire to register our displeasure to the whole nation…….
