This dust is still not settling and it seems there may be no settlement soon. Just a little background to the story and a little reason for this. Stephanie Busari is the CNN Correspondent for CNN Africa. Busari has always made her stance on the Dakolo case very clear.
Stephine jumped on Twitter to attack Kemi Olunloyo since Kemi always says she also worked at CNN. A seemingly ‘disgruntled’ Stephanie was not going to have it and decided to call out Kemi for ‘a few ramblings for some of the shows in 2009’.
Stephanie Busari was definitely referring to the 2009 appearance where Kemi Olunloyo was involved in Canada, the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab story. Farouk, the son of the Chairman of First Bank who became a terrorist trained in Yemen. It was reported that Farouk Abdulmutallab put a bomb in his pants and then boarded a plane going to the United States with an attempt to blow up the plane.
Kemi was the only journalist with information about the young man. She brought to light things that were hitherto unknown about him.
The journalist must have found offensive the ‘a few rambling…’ and decided to engage Busari who she claimed was still in school when she was with CNN. Kemi was not going to have Busari rubbish her years of work and experience.
The journalist and pharmacist decided to school Busari. See screenshots below:
