Twitter suspends fake Prof. Jega handle which created some tension on Thursday

by Dare Lawal

INEC (@inecnigeria) has debunked reports that its chairman, Attahiru Jega, threatened to resign if the commission is asked to postpone the polls.

The fake Twitter handle @ProfAttahiru, which tweeted the news, was retweeted by several influential Twitter handles, creating a lot of tension and the fear that the INEC chairman was being forced to do things against his better judgement.

The agency quickly reported the handle to Twitter which has now taken down the fake account. INEC tweeted shortly afterwards thanking Twitter for suspending the account.
