Twitter suspends accounts of Nigerian influencers over

Twitter has suspended the accounts of some Nigerian influencers for breaking the platform’s rules.

 

According to SaharaReporters,  they were suspended because of their tweets to free a Venezuelan diplomat, Alex Saab pictured above, who has been in detention in Cape Verde for months.

 

The suspended accounts include:  @Danny, @Tife, @Volqx, @Lamar, @Pamilerin, @Four eyed Edo Boy, @Biisi, @Mbah, @Alex_Houseof308, @Dasucre, @Mbahdeyforyou, @ogaKnowledge, @AimThaMachine_, @FestusGreen and @CO_Chiamaka.

 

“Twitter suspends accounts which violate the Twitter Rules,” the profile pages of the suspended accounts showed.

 

Many other accounts outside Nigeria were also suspended indefinitely for allegedly involving in a coordinated online campaign to obstruct justice.

 

During a fuel stop at Cape Verde, Saab was arrested while on his way from Iran to Venezuela on a business jet on June 12, 2020.

 

His arrest had to do with an Interpol red notice in relation to his indictment in the United States after he was accused of money laundering while on a humanitarian special mission to Iran.

Shortly after his detention, on June 14, Venezuelan foreign affairs minister tweeted in support of Saab, labelling his arrest as “arbitrary” and “illegal”.

 

On 30 November 2020, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Court of Justice ordered Cape Verde to grant house arrest to Alex Saab.

Femi Falana, counsel to Mr Saab, had filed a suit at the ECOWAS court challenging the arbitrary arrest and detention of the Venezuelan diplomat

 

He argued that as a diplomat, Mr Saab should have enjoyed diplomatic immunity and should not be subjected to imprisonment and legal proceedings by Cape Verde.

 

Mr Falana asked the ECOWAS court to order the release of the diplomat, allegedly detained based on a request by the United States Government.

 

On 15 December, the Cape Verde Court of Appeals ruled to refuse the decision, arguing that ECOWAS Court lacks the jurisdiction to force Cape Verde to take decisions.

 

On 29 December 2020, Nicolás Maduro appointed Saab as ambassador to the African Union, seeking to send him to Ethiopia and to prevent his extradition.

 

On 5 January 2021, the Cape Verde Court of Appeals ruled in favour of Saab’s extradition.

 

On 21 January, authorities of Cape Verde announced that his transfer to house arrest was approved.

 

In February 2021, the Venezuelan government organized a concert in support of Alex Saab, asking for his release. Two ruling party deputies visited Nigeria’s embassy in Venezuela, also asking for him to be freed.

 

On 22 February 2021, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida denied a request to cancel Saab’s extradition to the United States.

 

An intelligence report that the Financial Times had access to analysed more than half a million Twitter posts related to Alex Saab and concluded that Nicolás Maduro’s administration “and/or its proxies (witting or unwitting) are involved in a co-ordinated campaign to influence both the government of Cabo Verde and its population to obstruct Saab’s extradition”.

Single motherhood has devastated the Black race - Reno Omokri defends himself after outcry

Former Presidential Spokesperson, Reno Omokri who triggered an outcry with his tweet about single mothers, has shared another post in which he defended his stance. 

 

In new tweets he shared, Omokri said single motherhood has devastated the Black race. The former Presidential spokesperson pointed out that most Black males in US prisons come from single mother homes and the Black race should stop acting like it is not a challenge. 

 

He wrote; 

 

Yesterday, I said unless she was raped, widowed, or fleeing an abusive husband (not boyfriend), I have no sympathy for single mothers. Some took offence. Single motherhood has devastated the Black race. It may be convenient for you. Is it convenient for your child?

In New York, more Black babies are aborted than are born. No other race has such shameful statistics. If my sexual purity teaching annoys you, I invite you to visit the motherless babies home God helped me build, to see the effect of premarital sex

78% of all babies born to African American women are born by single mothers. The Black world should stop pretending this is not a challenge. No other race has such an abysmal rate of single mothers. Most Black males in US prisons come from single mother homes!
