Investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has come out to claim that the late Afenifere Chieftain, Yinka Odumakin cheated her while he was alive. According to a tweet she shared on her Twitter handle @KemiOlunloyo, “Remembering Yinka Odumakin and how he cheated me, never paid my salary till today…”
While other tweeters supported her, many did not support her idea of speaking ill of the dead. Many are of the view that it will be hard to believe her because of her antecedents.
A Twitter user @Ooni of A felt the timing of her disclosure is wrong. According to him, “Wrong timing. Allow the bereaved to mourn first at least”
Another Twitter user, DannyK @ambkolodan tweeted: ” Though I salute your boldness, but his own part of the story might be different…the question is why was this never said publicly when he was alive?….let the dead rest in peace please”
However, Kemi Olunloyo seems to find allies who supported her tweet. One of such is Ayobami @Ayrangers6. He corroborated her claim with his tweet, “This is completely true, most of those that worked with him confirm this and I can mention three of them”
One other tweeter , Will@Free-dom237 submitted that Kemi Olunloyo should not be taken seriously on her claim because the dead cannot defend himself. He tweeted, “The dead is not here to defend himself. What you heard from her is a one – sided story. How can you rightly conclude that’s the truth?”
What do you think? Is it right for Kemi Olunloyo to be making this claim at this time? Is she telling the truth or otherwise?
