Former spokesman for Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Ehsanullah Ehsan, who assumed responsibility for the shooting of Malala Yousafzai in 2012, threatened the Nobel Prize winner on Wednesday with posting on Twitter the error. “
Ehsan’s threat prompted Ms. Yousafzai to interview the Pakistani military (DGISPR) and Prime Minister Imran Khan on Twitter to explain how her shooter Ehsan escaped government custody.
“This is the ex-spokesman for Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan taking responsibility for the attack on me and many innocent people. He is now threatening people on social media. How did he escape @ OfficialDGISPR @ ImranKhanPTI?” Tweeted Mrs. Yousafzai.
In the meantime, Twitter finally blocked Ehsanullah’s account on Wednesday.
Ehsanullah Ehsan, former TTP spokesman nine years ago, shot and wounded Malala Yousafzai.
Ehsan’s flight in 2020 sparked an uproar in Pakistan with the opposition accusing the government of “sheer incompetence”.
In an audio message published in January 2020, Ehsan was heard that he had managed to escape from the Pakistani prison. Ehsan fled on January 11, but the Pakistani army has not yet given confirmation.
