Twitter Locks David Hundeyin’s Account For Exposing ‘Bola Tinubu’s Guinean Citizenship’
Twitter, has suspended the account of independent journalist, David Hundeyin, for exposing the Guinean passport of President-elect Bola Tinubu, Peoples Gazette has learnt.
On Saturday night, Mr Hundeyin sent Nigerian internet users into a frenzy after he uploaded images of a Guinean diplomatic passport bearing “Bola Ahmed Tinubu” and his photograph on Twitter.
Incensed by the exposure, Mr Tinubu’s supporters inundated the tweet with privacy complaints which triggered Twitter’s automated system to flag the post for deletion.
The journalist was also locked out of his account for violating Twitter’s policy around personal identifying information.
The journalist said he had contacted Twitter to appeal the suspension, presenting a strong argument that Mr Tinubu’s Guinean citizenship was a matter of national and public interest. He was, however, unsure when the suspension would be lifted.
