Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, has warned Nigerians using the Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass the suspension of Twitter in the country of exposing their data, including bank transaction details.
Mohammed said this on Tuesday when he appeared before lawmakers on Tuesday, during an investigative hearing on the ban on Twitter operation in Nigeria.
The Minister also said that those who think they are hurting him by using VPN, are only hurting themselves.
“My advice to anybody using VPN is to stop it because when you use VPN, it exposes your entire data, including your bank account. I’m serious, so please if you think you are using VPN and hurting Lai Mohammed, you are hurting yourself,” he said.
