The Nigeria Police Force has withdrawn the charges levied against a student of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, who was detained for 82 days, for operating a parody account of former President Goodluck Jonathan on Twitter.
Former president Jonathan has informed the police that he was no longer interested in pursuing the case.
Babatunde’s lawyer, Tope Akinyode, announced the development on Twitter, saying,
“The criminal charges against Babatunde Olusola over the parody account of former President Goodluck Jonathan have been withdrawn. The Federal High Court has struck out the case today in which I represented him.”
