The Twitter has account of the Attorney General of Nigeria, Abubakar Malami (SAN) has been deactivated. The senior lawyer posted the news via his verified Facebook page.
He wrote, “My Twitter Account Deactivated.”
The reason for the deactivation is known but recall that Twitter was banned in Nigeria following the deletion of a “threat” tweet posted by President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, many criticisms have trailed the post as they questioned how he accessed the platform since it had been officially banned in Nigeria and inaccessible to Nigerians.

Malami had earlier called for the prosecution of offenders who flout the Twitter ban on Saturday, 5th June, 2021. He made the post via his Facebook page and signed by Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relation. It reads, “Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN has directed for immediate prosecution of offenders of the Federal Government ban on Twitter operations in Nigeria.
