Everything is a joke to the Indomie Generation, especially the ones here on Twitter. Teach the misguided boy some lessons and then free him.

It is surprising how some persons are supporting the persecution of the young man. Parody account is never a crime, except there are evidence that he defrauded or made attempt to defraud anyone using the account.

I think where the main problem lies is that the handle quoted a tweet showing GEJ's wife and he replied with "my wife is a joke" using the parody account. However he should be released

Twitter won't come to your rescue if you open a Parody account of a prominent person. Others might be doing it for fun but the moment you try it, luck might run out of you. There are many innocent people waiting for trial in prison. Stay out of trouble,Naija is a lawless conntry

It wasnt even a parody account. He only changed name and picture briefly as a joke. 🤷 I guess Nigeria is just a place where the authorities bully relentlessly

Jail him immediately.

Shola technically did NOT open a Jonathan parody account. It has always been his personal account.
I really dont understand the rationale behind this insane injustice

Opening a parody accnt of a prominent person is wrong. Detaining person over alleged crime instead of charging him to court is wrong. We've said it, let them charge him 4 defamation of character nd jail him 4 years nobody cares. Stp illegal detention. #ChargeJayythedopeToCourtNow

Who is prosecuting him because Jonathan said he is not involved, DSS should tell us who is prosecuting him.

Only in Nigeria minor drama like this is been taken serious while the the terrorist n looters gained access to everything including freedom at d end.

If Gej truly knows about this then i detest him from now on, the young man made an open indication stating that its a parody account but still yet he went ahead to show him what a senior Nigerian can do to the poor. Lawless country!!!
