Twitter suspends and unverifies Vice-President Osinbajo’s account

Twitter has unverified the account of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, amid speculation that there was an attempt to hack the account.

All tweets by the account have since been deleted and his profile picture and header image have been taken down.

The account which was said to have been suspended, retrieved and unverified all in less than 24 hours.

While some suggest the VP was hacked, others claim he was suspended, but Twitter is yet to speak on the matter.

The hit, whatsoever it actually was, took place on Friday night and early Saturday, but the account was back online by Saturday morning, but all 2,399 tweets previously made by the vice-president and former attorney general of Lagos state were all gone.

The VP’s last tweet was from July 28, 2019, after visiting the home of Precious Owolabi, the Channels TV reporter killed in the Shi’ites-Police clash in Abuja.

The micro-blogging social network suspended or deletes accounts if they “violate the Twitter Rules“.
