Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Nigerian Police Public Relations Officer, has revealed why security officers left the microblogging platform Twitter during the recently concluded elections.
WITHIN NIGERIA reports that the Police Commissioner made the revelation in response to a netizen who expressed surprise at how the security agents went missing during the election.
I still can’t believe you and others went MIA during election period
Responding, Adejobi said they engaged with Nigerians on other social media platforms, stressing they left Twitter due to the aggressive nature of people on the platform.
The best thing to do then was not to engage in any conversation on Twitter. We were active on other platforms, and u can cross-check. Twitter people were too aggressive, and bc it’s basically for a group of people who are (were) not pleased with the state.
