The Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), has shared proof that he logged onto Twitter using VPN despite the ban.
The AGF had taken to his Facebook to share a screenshot of his deactivated Twitter page but it revealed that he had used a Virtual Private Networks (VPN) to log in after the ban by the FG.
Malami had on Saturday threatened to prosecute Nigerians who were still using VPN to access the microblogging platform.
VPN is a connection that allows users to establish a protected network connection when using public networks.
The Nigerian government had last Friday banned Twitter after the App deleted a controversial comment made by President Muhammadu Buhari, in which he made reference to the Nigerian Civil War, which many Nigerians described as distasteful.
The Kaduna state governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, a staunch supporter of the present regime, also tweeted on Sunday despite the ban.
Amidst the public outcry and criticism that followed the government’s decision, Malami had on Saturday directed the Director of Public Prosecutions in his office to begin the process of prosecuting violators of the government suspension order.
Despite his threat, many Nigerians have been using VPN to access Twitter and now the AGF has proven to be one of such Nigerians.
