The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), on Tuesday logged into Twitter and deactivated his account to show solidarity with the Federal Government which had banned the social media platform last Friday, aso Naija gathered.
It, nonetheless, stays blurred how Malami was able to log into his account since the Twitter URL has been suspended by all Internet Service Providers in the country.
Malami had on Saturday threatened to prosecute Nigerians who were still using the Virtual Private Networks to access Twitter even though no Nigerian law makes it illegal to tweet.
The AGF took to his Facebook page on Tuesday, posting a photo and a caption which read, “My Twitter account deactivated’.
However, Malami’s post received over 1,100 comments about 40 minutes later with many of his Facebook followers asking him how he accessed Twitter without using VPN.
Akintunde Babatunde wrote, “How were you able to deactivate Twitter without VPN? You should be arrested.”
Adebisi KingDavid wrote, “Can you explain how you did that without first logging in?”
“This is evidence that you logged into Twitter today via VPN to deactivate your account which is punishable under your unlawful law. Let us see how you will prosecute others without throwing yourself in jail,” Roy Ekwueme wrote.
