Following the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari’s genocidal remark, Twitter has also removed a message from Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Naturenex noticed a new development on Saturday evening, almost twenty-four hours after the Nigerian government stopped the social media platform’s activity in the country.
Before it was banned, government propagandist Lai Mohammed accused the microblogging service of applying a double standard by enabling separatists to utilise its platform to promote their actions.
In a now-deleted post, Nnamdi Kanu claimed that no army dispatched to the South-East would return alive.
It’s not for the living to respond to the dead but given the lack of reasoning prevalent in the Nigeria, I wish to assure @GarShehu, the Jihadi midget @elrufai & that Fulani lapdog Femi Adesina that any army they send to #Biafraland will die there. None will return alive,” the secessionist had tweeted on Wednesday.
Explaining why it was deleted, Twitter said the tweet goes against its rules.
“This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules,”
Meanwhile, Twitter has also deleted the #EndSARS emoji it made in solidarity of the historic global demonstrations seeking police extensive reforms last year October.
