Edmund Obilo finally breaks silence on Splash FM Ibadan saga
For weeks now, radio listeners in Ibadan had been asking questions on the whereabouts of Splash FM’s on-air personality Edmund Obilo, leaving many of his fans to think he had parted ways with the city’s first independent radio station just like several others including Bayo Faleke.
But this morning, Obilo decided to break the loud silence when he went on social media to inform his fans that he is on study leave and would soon return to radio.
“I am on study leave. Will be back on radio ‘very’ soon,” Obilo said.
Now the question is whether he is returning to Splash FM or is pitching his tent elsewhere.
Interestingly though, this is not the first that the employment status of Obilo at Splash FM would be in doubt. Just last year, the station had to release a statement telling Nigerians it did not sack the ace journalist. He later went back on air, to finally put to rest agitations over his absence.
Will it end in similar fashion very soon or will he be going to another station? Only time will tell. But I think the station needs him more than he needs them.
