Senator Dino Melaye who represented the Kogi Central Senatorial District in the 8th National Assembly has identified himself as the number three defaulter of the Federal Governments ban on Twitter.

The FG had last week suspended the microblogging platform for deleting 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.

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, Senior Pastor of Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, 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”.
