Prosecution Threat: CAN warns FG over Adeboye, Kumuyi, others


The Christian Association of Nigeria has reacted to the threat of the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami to prosecute some Christian leaders that violated the ban on Twitter

Reacting to Malami’s threat, Adebayo Oladeji, the Special Assistant on Media to the President of CAN warned the Federal Government.

He said, “We caution the Federal Government against carrying out its threats against those highly respected leaders. What they did was justified after all they run churches with global outlook and they made it clear in their position. If they (government) carry out the threat, it will only compound problems in the country.

“Any government policy that suspends the fundamental rights of the citizens is not acceptable to us. The government should rise up to the menace of insecurity facing the country without harassing the innocent and elder statesmen.”

It will also be recalled that n the AGF, Malami on Tuesday logged into Twitter and deactivated his account to show solidarity with the Federal Government.

Many Nigerians tongue lashed the chief law officer of the nation for the action, mocking him for logging into Twitter.
