Olunloyo revealed that she decided to go for a break and return to cover the elections in 2023 but changed her mind.
The journalist noted that despite sharing information with Nigerians for free, people did not stop soiling her name which made her lose so many opportunities, and it affected her mental health.
"I am mentally and physically weak. A foot surgery, a vulnerable immune system with COVID-19 out there, and 50% PTSD recovery, I have finally decided to leave digital journalism."
She, however, urged her true fans to stay in touch with her through her Instagram DM.
