Twitter ban: “Malami corrupt, criminally deactivated his account” – Sowore claims



Omoyele Sowore, a former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), has berated the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami for deactivating his Twitter handle after the Federal Government’s ban.


Sowore described Malami as a corrupt and incompetent lawyer for criminally deactivating his Twitter account.


Malami is believed to have used the Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to access Twitter after the ban by the Federal Government.


Recall that after the ban slammed on Twitter by the Federal Government took effect on Saturday, Nigerians opted for Virtual Private Networks (VPN) in a bid to access the platform.


VPN is a key path for digital anonymity in a bid to access the platform.


However, Malami came out on Saturday and ordered the immediate prosecution of offenders of the Federal Government ban on Twitter operations in Nigeria.


Meanwhile, the Minister of Justice accessed the microblogging platform with the aid of a VPN.


When connected to a VPN, a key or lock icon will appear within the notification bar indicating that the VPN is connected and Safe Browsing is enabled.


In the screenshot shared by Malami, there is a key icon on the left side in the notification bar, indicating that Malami’s phone was connected with a VPN to access Twitter.


Reacting, Sowore accused the Minister of Justice of birthing a full fledged dictatorship.


In a post on his verified Facebook, Sowore wrote: “A message I left for Nigeria’s Attorney General and Minister of (In)Justice Abubakar Malami, SAN on his Facebook comment section after he criminally deactivated his Twitter account;


“A lawless, heartless, corrupt, unjust and incompetent lawyer saddled with the ministry of justice who doesn’t have an idea what it means to work for justice.


“An Attorney General that initiated a memo to birth full fledged dictatorship. Be reminded of what befell your predecessors. You won’t escape the harsh verdict of history! #RevolutionNow #BuhariMustGo”.
