Twitter has deleted tweets by Festus Keyamo, Minister of State for Labour and Employment, where he revealed phone number of Eedris Abdulkareem, a musician.
Keyamo had on Sunday in a series of tweets revealed chats between him and Abdulkareem with his phone number visible.
Twitter wrote in a brief post, “This tweet violated the Twitter Rules.” The social media company did not explicitly state which of its rules was violated.
Keyamo had said Abdulkareem is angry with him because he did not allow him join President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign train in 2018.
Eedris, who recently released ‘Jagajaga Reloaded’ to point out the ills of the Buhari-led government had said in a line in the song that Keyamo, who was an activist, has been silenced because ‘e don dey chop with cabal’.
