Bello El-rufai, son of Kaduna State governor, has flouted the Twitter ban placed by the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The young lad, who threatened to gang-rape the mother of his critic, is also a supporter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) which has backed Mr Buhari which initially ban the micro-blogging platform indefinitely but recently said it was temporary.

The violation comes hours after Abubakar Malami, Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) threatened to arrest and prosecute those still using the social networking site after it was banned.

The social media giant which has promised to help Nigerians bypass the ban is not accessible in Nigeria except through the use of Virtual Private Network (VPN) which most Nigerians opted for when the restrictions became effective Saturday morning.

It is unclear where Mr El-rufai is tweeting from as at press time, but he tweeted Sunday afternoon soliciting for followers on Instagram.
