IPOB urges Twitter to ban Buhari’s account

0

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has called on microblogging platform, Twitter, to delete President Muhammadu Buhari’s account completely.

This follows the deletion of Buhari’s tweet by Twitter on Wednesday.

The president, after receiving briefing from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, on the destruction of the commission’s facilities across Nigeria, had in his reaction referenced the civil war and threatened to deal with trouble makers.

However, Twitter took down his tweets, explaining that it violated Twitter rules.

IPOB in a statement on Thursday, signed by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful, commended Twitter for “its courage to speak truth to power adding that the microblogging site should “go a step further and completely delete Buhari from its system as a deterrent to others”.

“The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has noted the action of Twitter in deleting the inciting statement by President Muhammadu Buhari, threatening another war against Biafrans,” part of the statement read.
