Following the recent Twitter ban in Nigeria by the Federal Government, and Abubakar Malami’s comment over the ban, University of Abuja’s Faculty of Law has used his actions as an examination question.
It would be recalled that after the ban, many Nigerians continued to tweet in defiance of the Federal government’s ban imposed on Twitter.
Some Nigerians resorted into using Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) to bypass the ban after telecommunications companies heeded the government's directive and blocked the micro-blogging app.
As a result of that, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, reportedly “directed for immediate arrest and prosecution of violators of the ban”, telling the public prosecutor to “swing into action”.
Few days after he reportedly gave the directive, he came out again to debunk the prosecution threats.
However, the University of Abuja, Faculty of Law, has used Malami’s directive as an examination question for its post-graduation students.
