BREAKING: Pastor Adeboye Defies Twitter Ban, Says Action Covered By UN Charter On Human Rights

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has tweeted despite the ban on microblogging site, Twitter by the Nigerian government. 

Adeboye, who defied the ban on Monday described tweeting as being in accordance with Article 19 of the UN universal declaration of human rights.


He tweeted, “The Redeemed Christian Church of God is domiciled in more than 170 Nations & Territories. The tweets here are in accordance to Article 19 of the UN universal declaration of Human Rights.” 

Nigerian government banned Twitter last Friday after the App deleted a controversial comment made by President Muhammadu Buhari, in which he made reference to the Nigerian Civil War, which many Nigerians described as distasteful.
