Senior Special Assistant - Media and Publicity to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Loalu Akande, has been accused of reporting a Nigerian twitter user to her boss, after she called him a novice online.
The said twitter user, who's a civil servant, disclosed this, revealing that she had to face a panel at her workplace as the letter was signed on behalf of Osinbajo. Is this an attempt to stifle free speech, as her twitter account was actually referred to as a security risk to the Nigerian state?

Small thing. @akandeoj screen grabbed a tweet and signed a letter on behalf of Pastor Osinbajo to my office that I called him novice online. https://t.co/lSxYtQZD1c— Bolouere (@boluxxxx) September 10, 2017
Faced a panel that couldn't indict me cos referenced tweet was taken out of context but panel insisted it was "order from Pastor Osinbajo". https://t.co/bpGrpwUP4g— Bolouere (@boluxxxx) September 10, 2017
