Breaking: El-Rufai Detained by SSS, His Twitter Account Reveals

A tweet appearing on the twitter account of Mallam el-Rufai has the former FCT minister claiming that he has been detained by members of the State Security Service (SSS). The tweet was posted at round 12.33pm on Wednesday 8th August.

Acording to the tweet: “The SSS at the Lagos Airport tell me they have orders to detain me and prevent me from travelling… the waiting game starts…”

This latest detention is coming less than a day after the former minister, in an interview granted to a national daily, advised the president to resign if he cannot deal with the security problems of the country.

This also serves to show our leaders – especially those who have in recent times condemned the use of the social media by Nigerians – that social media serve the good of all Nigerians, especially when they have nothing to hide. Now Nigerians know that el-Rufai has been detained, and they will demand explanations – why is the former minister being detained?
