Twitter, microblogging platform, temporarily suspended the account of Aisha Yesufu, leader of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) movement, on Thursday.

Twitter said the account was suspended over “unusual activity.”

“Caution: this account is temporarily restricted. You are seeing this warning because there has been some unusual activity from this account,” a statement from Twitter read.

Nigerians on Twitter, including Oby Ezekwesili, former minister of education and also BBOG co-convener, reacted to the development and called on the social media giant to restore the account.

The account which was frozen was restored on Thursday.

In a mail sent to Yesufu, Twitter explained that the restriction was placed after its automated systems flagged a series of tweets from the account as spam.

“We apologise for the mix-up, and hope to see back on Twitter,” it wrote.

Yesufu thanked Twitter users who lent voices to the restriction, adding that she would continue to be a voice for Nigerians.

“Thank you everyone for your voices. I have gotten a mail from @Twitter and I am back. I will continue to be a voice. My voice is not for myself alone but for so many others who unfortunately did not get that education that so many of us take for granted to have a voice. THANK YOU,” the tweet read.

Yesufu is  known to be a critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a video that trended in 2017, she called for the resignation of Buhari due to health challenge.
