- The tweet was deleted on Saturday with the social media platform saying it violates its rules
Barely 24 hours after the Nigerian government banned the activities of Twitter operations in the country, the popular microblogging platform has deleted incendiary tweets by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.
In the inciting tweet, the IPOB leader vowed to unleash terror on Nigerian soldiers deployed to the Southeast.
He also used derogatory words to describe some top aides of President Muhammadu Buhari as well as the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai.
“It’s not for the living to respond to the dead but given the lack of reasoning prevalent in the #Zoo Nigeria, I wish to assure @GarShehu (Garba Shehu) , the Jihadi midget @elrufai (Nasir El-Rufai) & that Fulani lapdog Femi Adesina that any army they send to #Biafraland will die there. None will return alive,” Kanu wrote via his handle on Wednesday.
Adesina and Shehu are both presidential aides while El-Rufai is the current Governor of Kaduna State and a member of Nigeria’s ruling party, APC.
The tweet was deleted on Saturday with the social media platform saying it violates its rules.
The deletion was done a day after the federal government suspended the activities of Twitter in Nigeria accusing it of undermining the country’s corporate existence.
