Senator Dino Melaye has stated that there is no law criminalizing the use of Twitter in Nigeria and therefore those using the App cannot be arrested.
Dino Melaye made this known after the Attorney General of the Federal Malami had announced that anyone who is caught using twitter app would be arrested charged. Senator Melaye says,
“Malami can not arrest even a fly because he is not the law. Lai Mohammed’s statement is not a Law either. Is there any law criminalizing the use of Twitter in Nigeria today? Capital NO. AGF Malami go and read the Constitution Section 36(12) and be educated. SDM”
Senator Melaye also advised the Attorney General to go and read the Section 36 (12) of the Nigerian Constitution.
