Senator Dino Melaye, who served in the 8th National Assembly as a member of the Kogi Central Senatorial District, has been named as the third defaulter of the Federal Government’s Twitter ban.
The Federal Government (FG) stopped the microblogging site last week for allegedly enabling information that could endanger Nigerians’ business survival.
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”.
