While it is common for Instagram, like other social networking sites, to delete accounts violating its policies, Adamu did not disclose the nature of the offence leading to the development.

Recall that Ripples Nigeria reported that Adamu Garba’s Twitter-like app, Crowwe, went missing on Google Playstore on Monday.

There are speculations that the new development is not unrelated to Playstore ordeal.

Before Monday, there have been criticisms that Adamu Garba pirated the terms and conditions of American music-tech product, Spotify.
