Former Presidential Aide, Reno Omokri has called for the arrest of Nigeria’s Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami for trading Bitcoin.
He has asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to effect his arrest.
This comes after a screenshot shared by Malami showed that he uses a cryptocurrency, LAtoken to trade bitcoin.
Additionally, it was gathered that he uses VPN to access the ban social media platform.
In reaction, Reno Omokri asked the EFCC to quickly arrest Malami in series of tweets;
“If the Chief Law Enforcer of the Buhari government is himself trading in Bitcoin, as can be clearly seen by the LAToken icon on the screenshot he released showing he has deactivated his Twitter account, then he must apologise and step down”
“Attached is prima facie proof Buhari’s AGF, Malami, trades in #Bitcoin. Why else would he have a #Cryptocurrency app @latokens) on his phone? This is a violation of the law and he must be investigated and prosecuted. Highly hypocritical”
“My counsel to Nigerians is continue trading #Bitcoin and use a VPN. If Buhari’s Attorney General, Malami, who is meant to enforce the ban on #Crypto, is himself trading in it, then @officialEFCC should arrest him before they arrest you.”
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami issued a directive that anyone caught using VPN to access Twitter should be arrested and prosecuted.
