On Tuesday, The President had posted a tweet via his verified Twitter handle @MBuhari tweeted: “Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
The tweet has attracted several comments and strong analyses with many Nigerians saying it was a threat to commit human rights violations.
Following several complaints, Twitter pulls down the tweet, by deleting the tweet.
And a comment by Twitter made to the effect stated, “This Tweet violated the Twitter rules.”
However, senior lawyers, human rights groups and the Igbo socio-cultural organisation, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, have hailed a social media giant, Twitter, for deleting a controversial post by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Nigerian Civil War from 1967 and 1970.
The Federal Government (FG) accused the social media giant, Twitter, yesterday, of double standards in its treatment in the matter concerning Nigeria.
And described the Twitter company’s role in Nigeria as a suspect.
It was also stated that Has Twitter pulls down the violent tweets that Nnamdi Kanu has been sending? Has it?
FG has also accused Twitter of showing similar biases when people were vandalizing, killing policemen and burning police stations in Nigeria during #EndSARS, for Twitter, it was about the right to protest. But when a similar thing happened on the Capitol, it became an insurrection.
