BY SHITTA SOFIYAT

The Nigerian communications commission has said that it is not within its purview to arrest and prosecute violators of the twitter suspension order.

Recall that in a statement on Saturday, the attorney general of the federation, Abubakar Malami, had directed the director of public prosecution to liaise with the ministry of communication and digital economy, the NCC and other relevant government agencies in other to ensure the speedy prosecution of offenders without any further delay.

But when contacted on how far the NCC had gone in collaborating with the DPP to prosecute offenders, the director of public affairs, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde, said it was not within the power of the commission to arrest or prosecutes.
