The last has not been heard of movie maker, Ruth Kadiri, and controversial journalist and blogger, Kemi Olunloyo.
Kadiri had warned Olunloyo to desist from bullying DJ Switch or any other person with her position.
According to Kadiri, she would not keep quiet, fold her hands and watch Olunloyo always taunting DJ Switch, ‘It is unacceptable’, she said.
“Everyone always looks away until the worst happens. Then we start shouting justice for. #kemiolunloyo is the number social media bully I know, from bully children to adults, everyone sees this, fratanizes with her or looks the other way. She will pick on you and make you her subject for a year. For fear of this, everyone is quiet. It is ok, not to share Dj switches sentiments. You have right you can stand with who ever you want. But constantly taunting her. Calling her out. It is unacceptable. And I will not be a passerby who watches and is quiet. #saynoyobullying,” Ruth Kadiri wrote.

She wrote: “Dear @ruthkadiri I appreciate if you please KEEP MY NAME OFF YOUR MOUTH. I have sent you a DM. I’ve never heard of you till today possibly because I’m not a film watcher nor found you notable. I must educate you about bullying. This is not the time to drag my work as I don’t drag yours. Know what an investigative journalist does. If I report about someone I investigated and you don’t like it, it’s NOT BULLYING. It’s the bitter truth. I am asking you to pls pls pls REMOVE the post that has you bullying and harassing me with hate speech to your fans. You don’t want to get into a long drawn fight with me. If I have people flag that post @instagram will remove it and will count it as censored community guidelines violation. You have no right to shame and degrade me.”
She continued: “I HAVE CHILDREN OLDER THAN YOU AND I AM OLDER THAN YOUR MOTHER. STOP THIS IMMEDIATELY. People will call me wicked if I start with you. You went into depression, have a child to care for and even threatened your own colleagues with their choice of votes during elections. You said Nigerians don’t deserve help yet you portray this Angel nice demeanor to your fans. Pleeeease leave me alone and don’t talk about me. Your DM is below. Keep your mouth OFF MY WORK as I don’t know yours.”
Exposing what she had sent to Ruth Kadiri’s DM, Kemi Olunloyo added: “CHECK YOUR DM. Ruth pls take down that post off your page calling me a social media bully. I’m old enough to give birth to you at 33. My children are 35, 30 and 21. It’s uncalled for. Let sleeping dogs lie. I’m an investigative journalist and an opinion journalist. I don’t bully people. #419massacre is a documentary of what I found on my #Lekkitollgate investigation #IJLekkimassacre. Your post is downright offensive and I don’t want my own fans to start flagging your post. Plssss keep my name off your mouth plsss. I do not know you or interfere or criticize your work, pls don’t interfere with mine. You should apologize for this. It’s very unfair and disrespectful.
