1 Mins read

A former federal lawmaker, Dino Melaye has urged the federal government to come and arrest him for defiling its Twitter ban order.

He said he is number three on the defaulters’ list being compiled by the Federal Government for all those ignoring its ban on Twitter.

The FG had last week suspended the microblogging platform for allegedly allowing contents that are capable of threatening the corporate existence of Nigerians.

However, many Nigerians have been accessing the platform via the use of Virtual Private Network, VPN.

The Senior Pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye tweeted on Monday, stating that his church will not comply with the FG’s ban.

Similarly, a former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode on Sunday defiled the FG’s ban, tweeted via his verified handle challenging the FG to do its worst.

Other prominent Nigerians including the Kaduna State Governor, El-Rufai have continued to use the medium despite the threat of prosecution by the FG.

Senator Dino Melaye, in his tweet on Monday via his verified handle, said he would be the third person to face prosecution.

The tweet reads, “Government list to Police on the Twitter ban, my name is number 3. In an unjust society silence is a crime. Please let’s start.

“Government can’t take away our human right”.
