An investigative journalist and Twitter lord, David Hundeyin, has again attacked Flutterwave over data breach and unathourised access to his inactive Barter account, a lifestyle payments solution by the company.

This won’t be the first time Hundeyin would be dragging the fintech company. Recall that Freelanews reports how Flutterwave’s CEO was being investigated over allegations of financial misconduct as a result of an exclusive report by the controversial journalist.

In a series of post on his Twitter handle, Hundeyin claimed his account was logged into and threatened the platform of serious consequences if any fraud is perpetrated by impersonating him.

“Hi @theflutterwave. I have sent an email requesting immediate deactivation of my inactive Barter account.

“Someone has somehow gained access to that account without hacking my email which is impossible without an internal data breach from your end,” he wrote.
