Kemi Omololu Olunloyo, the Ibadan born daughter of the former National Party of Nigeria (NPN) ‘son of the soil’ Mathematician Victor Omololu Olunloyo is faing deportation back to Nigeria from her base in Toronto Canada.
She has been slated for removal by Canadian Immigration authorities who have summoned her to show up on May 4 to a 6900 Airport Rd. office of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to set a date for removal back to Nigeria.
The notorious Nigeria Igbo tribe hater and a cynic critic of the Nigerian Government is seriously rattled as she has vowed to fight the deportation move.
“I am a journalist and it will be only a matter of time before I am killed,” she said. “The government do not like people who ask a lot of questions.”, she told Canadian Press last weekend putting up a bold face.
Ms Kemi as she is popularly called said some of her blogs and tweets on Social Network fora have been against the government of Nigeria and therefore she stood to be eliminated if she touches on Nigeria soil.
She may not be far away from the truth, but her real enemies are not the government but the Igbo people many of whom had threatened her with assassination if she was caught, with many Igbo young guys vowing to kill her if they had the opportunity to eliminate her because of her constant negative campaign.
She had carried out unrepentant hate campaign and at one time referred to departed Igbo leader, Dim Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu as a criminal who murdered millions for his selfish goals. She is also a sworn enemy of many Yoruba leaders including Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
Sources said Kemi’s removal from Canada had got nothing to do with any criminal or fraud related issues, but strictly on default immigration status, as the laws guiding her filed status have not been in her favour.
While she held that she stood the risk of government reprisal in Nigeria, Canadian authority claimed that there was no danger awaiting her in Nigeria as their investigation had shown.
Omololu-Olunloyo arrived at Pearson airport from Nigeria, via the U.S., in 2007 with her children and filed unsuccessful refugee claims and subsequent appeals. She had been constantly refused her leave to remain in the country, but still put up courageous fights.
The CBSA, in documents, claim she is not at risk if she is removed from Canada.
The former U.S. green-card holder, publicist and journalist has been plagued by reports that she is sought on outstanding warrants in Georgia, a claim that she denies citing one court action that is being appealed.
Omololu-Olunloyo is well-known in Toronto for helping black parents who’ve had their sons murdered. She has held vigils for at least 17 slain youth.
She has been a major human rights activists within the black community in Canada fighting for crime victims, and her current challenge has been her worse ever, being on the good record of Canadian Police as a lone crime fighter. Not only Kemi is facing deportation, the Canadian blacks rights advocate are to be deported with all members of her family.
Omololu-Olunloyo, 48, a mother of four sons who are U.S. citizens, has been internationally recognised as a long-time voice of grieving parents in the GTA whose sons were murdered by gunmen.
She has helped struggling families cope and generate publicity that translated into tips that could help police to catch up on killers.
At a stage, Toronto police provided good covers for her , portraying her as a victim of cyber harrassment, putting many machinery in motion to arrest many of her internet harassers.
She has also been a regular commentator on black issues on various Television programme in Canada and United States.
“We have helped a lot of families and this is very frustrating,” Omololu-Olunloyo said to the press from her Toronto home, adding: “Nobody knows what will happen to us when we are deported to Nigeria.”
She and her son, Kayode Joshua (KJ), 11, have been packing their belongings for the trip home.
Omololu-Olunloyo said KJ ran away from home for several hours on Thursday last week and police had to be called to help find him.
“He does not want to go back to Nigeria,” she said. “I know I will be killed when I return for what I have written against the government.”
“I have worked on at least 17 vigils in the past for young men who were murdered,” she said. “There have been seven suspects caught and there were two convictions.”
One of the first vigils she helped arrange was that of William “Junior” Appiah, 18, who was slain outside 4400 Jane St. in 2008. She has also helped the family of Jarvis St Remy, 18, who was killed at a bus stop in Dec. 2009, and Adrian Mitchell Johnston, 14, who was killed in a hydro field near Scarlett Rd. and St. Clair Ave. in 2009.
No date has been set for her removal from Canada.
