Aboyeji who disclosed that he had sold his shares in Flutterwave since 2021, wondered why his Twitter account deactivation would be linked to the African unicorn company matter.

Some Twitter users had made some tweets suggesting that Aboyeji deactivated his account because of the Flutterwave incident.

“I made a decision to abandon Twitter a week back and officially deactivated a few days before the story broke,” Aboyeji stated.

“Furthermore, the issue at hand doesn’t concern me because I left Flutterwave in 2018 and I sold my shares in the company in 2021 so it’s absurd to imagine that that would drive my decision,” the digital tech entrepreneur added.
